New to Alfa's

Am new to Alfa'a but not new too cars . I have just purchased a 2001 Alfa 156 1.8ts veloce with 83400 on the clock for well a pretty cheap price . It needs some work doing to it as it needs a full service and also cambelt as it was changed just over three years ago and under 30000 miles done on it. I love the different look of Alfa's compared to alot of other cars out there and hope by joining this forum to get more experience with them. A few of my friends ( mechanics ) told me to stay away from Alfa's because of some of the issues associated with the brand . Few questions if thats allowed on this post ??

Cambelt ... ok to just pootle round town or dont drive until its done ?Will be driving it home later for a 79 miles run but will be nice and gentle with it

Am off to pick the car up later today and hope to have some fun with it .. Nice to actually have something different from what I normally purchase. Hope to have many years and some more Alfa's if I enjoy this one
