Re: Boo!

Greetings. Welcome to AO.

If you've read the advice about belts and stuff you'll probably know about getting the tensioners done at the same time. Best check they are replacing those too if you've still got time!

Happy motoring.

Don't forget to put yourself on the map (if you haven't already done so!). http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/vbgooglemapme.php.

Re: Boo!

Yes. I stopped using them for my servicing because they charge the earth and they changed the timing belt on my car without changing the tensioners despite assuring me that they had. BEWARE!!
