Newbie from swindon

hi all I'm seriously considering taking the plunge for a gt coupe, but I'm not a very DIY savvy guy so have been told to stay away from alfas... typical stereotypes eh but after driving a gt coupeI just fell in love with it! but before I really commit I'd like to have am idea of what I might be getting myself into, e.g. what are the common problems that I need to look out for when buying one? how much should I set aside each year for servicing and repairs? I'm looking at about 5k diesel's, so that'd mean closing in to 60k miles and 8 years old, apart from the can belt what else should one have ha replaced ideally? waterpump?

many thanks!
