Have you had a belt done previously?(1999 would make it 7 years old!!).

The garage is right to say that cambelt failure can be catastrophic,and the price they quote to do the work isn't too bad,although I suspect you could get done cheaper elswhere.Just make absolutely sure that you need it done.

The cambelt is due at 72,000 miles or 5 years.(The garage will need a special locking kit to do the belt.Make sure they have it)

Welcome to the forum,by the way.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
