... ALFA or midlife crisis.. erm ALFA!

Hi all,
just about to purchase my first Alfa.. The red beauty is a 156sw 2l.. (not the best model i've been told.. )
Unfortunatly not much paper work.. Invoices / service manual / mot's from a few years ago
and cambelt stickers under the bonnet (but no no# left on them) so need to ring the garage that the stickers belong to and hopefully they have records of what mileage they we're done..
Had a dig about on the forum about what to look for when buying.. (cheers for that).. the engine sounds sweet no diesel rattle noise - no squeeks - just shame about the missing service\ cam info..

If it turns out it requires a new belt etc. anyone recommend a garage that will do it (with min hassle) in the bridgend / swales area?

also noted that one of the rear door leccy windows doesnt go down.. (common issue?) I have been told he'd get the mechanic to look at before i take it.. (are we looking at something expensive)
well cheers again..
