GTV cam belt

Hello all,

I need to get my cam belt done on my GTV (3.0 V6) - I've spoken to a couple of garages and both are quoting around the £450-500 mark.

Is this about right? Does anyone know of a decent Alfa specialist in the Gloucestershire area? (Or near work, Newbury)

Cheers

Black and White very close to Newbury.
Price sounds about right - quite cheap actually. Make sure it includes tensioners.

Prices aren't bad, but you really should go on quality (from an Alfa specialist) rather than just price.

Having said that, my local specialist seems to be the bench mark for Alfa cam belt change costs at £400 inc for v6

I had mine done a few months ago. New Belt and everything that goes with it, 8 New spark plugs, replacing the broken hellicoli? that blow it out the engine, new engine cover, new brake pads. I think thats it for 600 notes inc VAT and Labour from an Alfa Specialist in Oxford. I thought that was pretty good. Thats not to far from newbury.

Neither, A small work shop ran by a bloke called Dave Crawford. Worked on Alfas for years and definatly knows his stuff. he doesnt have all the electrical and analytical kit but all the mechanical stuff he is spot on.
