156 2.5 V6 Cambelt change quote

Hi people, I've just been quoted £700+ for a cambelt change by an Alfa specialist in Rainham, Kent.
I've no doubt they'll do a good job, but does anyone know of a reputable garage in the South-east that does the job considerably cheaper?!

It's £450 at my local alfa specialist in East London.

Best get the water pump done too.

Well, AlfaWorkshop is cheap at £400, but Gonellas in Catford is near enough to be worth £450. That should save me enough for the auxilary belts, tensioner and a service! Thanks guys

Alfa WorkShop (Jamie Porter) may squeeze the job to just under the 400 mark if I remember rightly, but this will rise depending on whether you fit a water pump or need other bits.

Give them a ring and ask.
