Re: Help! Timing Belt on 147 snapped!
Having spoken to Alfa UK the other day, they will consider a in-kind payment if the car is under 5 years old and the belt has done less than 72k. As long as you act dumb as if you didn't know, after all, it's there issue changing the service interval, not yours.
The only sticking point is the history. If the car has had the FSH, as per the schedule supplied with the car and a reputable garage that used parts of reasonable quality then you should be ok (thanks to that handy bit of EU law from a while back.)
Just give them a call, be polite and see what happens, worst they can say is no!
