Need my timing belt replacing, and here in Sweden mechanics charge more than they do back in England, combined with having a re-adjusted tax bill from the Swedish taxman from 2009 for just over two grand English money, I need a cheap replacement kit.

It does work out cheaper to buy in England and ship over here, so need something for a quick fix for a few months until I can get a proper after market jobbie.

also looking for a offside (which is my drivers side, but English offside) fog lamp and a lambda sensor.

All on 156 2002 (facelift I think, its got the crystal headlamps).

Been searching Google, but the cheapest I can currently find starts at like £120/30 quid.

MOT is in mid February so thought I'd better start looking now. :thumbs:

Try either Ned at autolusso or Jamie at alfaworkshop. Either company should be able to sort you a good quality kit for less money than a dealer :)

For a belt kit including tensioner/idler and a waterpump £120 is pretty good to be honest

Used that company for the rear hubs for the Fiat Multipla, shipment 12 eur and 48 hours to deliver, at my door step i Denmark.
If tools is an issue for the cambelt I will strongly recommend to avoid "totally alfa" in England,they did not send my parts!!!!!!!!!
Try this instead : The Alfa Workshop, specialist Alfa Romeo garage and web resource

I presume this is for a TS/JTS? Do a search on ebay.co.uk, one of the Alfa dealers is supplying a genuine cambelt kit (cambelt, tensioner, idle bearing) for £70. Another good genuine supplier (Partsworld) can provide a genuine waterpump for £39 (total £109 plus postage).
