sorry to bring this up again but just looking elsewhere and thought i'd double check wether it was my mistake and no i copied the email alfa sent to me exactly see below, all ive removed are the reg no and my name.
Thank you for your enquiry on our website.
We at the Alfa Romeo Information Centre have not heard from our Head Office that the time of renewing the cambelt has changed form 72000 miles to 36000 miles. The Alfa 156 needs to have the cambelt examined every 240000 miles by an Alfa Romeo dealer to see whether or not it needs to be changed.
Recall letters are sent out from the DVLA do not come directly from Alfa Romeo UK. If you wish to find out whether your vehicle needs a recall letter please call the DVLA directly.
