For those parts your best option is to go to your local motor factor. other than that, you'd be looking at going original and sourcing the parts from an Alfa dealer or getting the part online.

Best of luck with the NCT

This is who I get parts off, £15 for delivery unless they are extra large items. Good sterling rate at the moment too.

Alfa Romeo Parts and Alfa Romeo Spares from EB Spares - Specialist Alfa Parts Dealers

Can also try Alfa Romeo Shop - Tuning, Styling, Fanartikel und Modellautos maybe

I find BPB Car Parts and Car Accessories - Buy Parts By to be the cheapest for the timing and balance belt kits, 100 Sterling for the whole lot iirc..... and with the current exchange rate that's good news!

Oil filter you should be able to pick up anywhere although (and this is just my own opinion) I always use proper main dealer fiat/alfa oil filters on the 2.0L.

Air filter from any local motor factors will do, although if you can stretch to a panel type performance filter I'd recommend it. They can be cleaned and dont work out that more expensive over time.

There is a guy from Donohues on Alfaireland offering discounts-might be worth a look.

hi

you could try alfa man a uk breaker. A good site is the parts gateway uk, where a number of dismantlers will quote you for spares, you can then choose which one you want

Got mine (spark plugs and brakes) from Jaime Porter at alfaworkshop.co.uk.
Experienced no problems.

Local motor factors should have filters/oil etc.

Hi @ll. Thanks for all the comments. I got original oil filter from Alasta Autos in Ballsbridge - just few steps away from my office, so very handy to have it here (same with windscreen washer jets). Spent 24 quid on everything so not that bad. Oil and air filter I will get from local retailer in Newbridge (air filter EUR 6.50). With cam belt I will hold my horses for a moment (but I will keep in mind all your sugestions). Thanks again.

Max
