Guys, Why wait for any symptom to appear so as to think of timing chain replacement. As things stand, replacement at 60k is just a preventive maintenance measure. And bear in mind once any symptom starts appearing it means some amount of damage is already happening inside. 9/10 times the timing chain will not give up slowly but with a bang, an expensive bang. So the choice is yours. FIAT has deliberately kept the interval at a ridiculously small value - 60k -so as to minimise chain failures. Some have lasted much more some havent. The 75hp Punto I mentioned in last post had covered 89,000km's when the timing chain snapped and fortunately driver was safe and damage limited to a broken camshaft only. But like they say in England - you pays yer money. Cheers.
