She looks great, but as a novice I'd be apprehensive about a car due a timing belt change. How much would that be likely to cost?

Depends on who you get I suppose. Dealer would be way more than a small garage. However you shouldn't really go to a small garage unless they are kinda known to be good for alfa's?

Maybe some of the lads here could suggest a local garage near you and give you a quote? I usually get mine as part of a full service and I'd pay about 600. So I think for my the belt change works out at about 400??? I'm not positive though as the last belt change was 2 years ago.

Regards being a novice... there is some fab info here, and if you do end up buying an alfa you'll soon become an expert on belt changes :) :) :)

ps like I said in the other advert, I was planning on just getting it passed the NCT next march and then the I was going to get the belt changed later in the year... split the cost like :)
The first timing belt change was at 47k, I did the next at 36k later but I'd feel happy with the car pushing it out a bit, but its up to you and what you feel happy with.

She looks lovely , cant understand how I havent seen it around .

According to your TB change there seems to be about 8K miles left on the belt but Ti Auto's would be the guys to go to in dublin , they will give him a good price for TBelt .. Good luck with the sale :thumbs:

We'll try and look after her up here in the pale... and she shouldn't feel too out of place, she's in the Leinster colours after all ;)
