Crazed Head Gasket Failure - 147 Selespeed

I am faced with a decision regarding the repair of the head gasket on my 147 2.0 selespeed. I have the offer of an engine re-conditioning firm quote for £485 to replace the head gasket (with an extra £160 to add in the cam belts and water pump) - only down side is they are in Nottingham so have to take a day out to tow it there (I have a self tow frame for one man towing). My local garage have bid £300 for the work plus the costs of the parts and then I am tempted to do the work myself (just the time and car storage whilst I am doing the job although not pressed for urgent repair of the car as I have another one....

Any Advice from all you experienced alfa owners?

if you're coming up Nottingham way get it done here Alfa Romeo Specialist that's where i had mine done they're by far the bet around here and can fully vouch for their work, on the other hand however if you have the time and knowledge to get it done yourself properly, then go for it you'll save yourself a bucket load of cash
