Welcome to the forum.
Head skimming is a process that takes small layers off of the cylinder head face to make is flat and true and can only be carried out by specialist engineering companies.Prices vary,but it usually costs around £25 to do.
I think the 1.6 8 valve Renault engine is OK,but some heads can't be skimmed due to the small piston and valve clearances.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
