    I need some guidance please on the 156 2.5. What is the recommended interval for cambelt change? I know about the 3 years I forgot the kms. If the belt change is to be done prematurely (20 000km) do the 2 idlers necessarily need to be changed as well? How many times can the head bolts be...

    I'm a trifle confused by the Alfa warranty system. The only other brand new car I have ever bought was a Saab, from my local dealer and it was a three year warranty that seemed clear as a bell - as an aside, the only thing I ever needed fixed was a rear wiper that stopped working. Now, my new...

    So after a week of my 159 SW I gave the wheels a wipe down. PHK they are nice! They have a pearl finish which is different to the matt finish of the Teledials I had on my 147GTA. Q - how do I keep this finish? Wax & polish? FYI - will post a review of the 159 2.2JTS SW this w/end (all...
