    They're not 'due' until 100k, but I changed mine at 87k. Oh and it's a belt.

    If you have the dreaded swirl valve problem, then it's an ideal way of killing two birds with one stone.

    Should realistically be looking at 60k and no more before changing the timing belt/pulleys
    Plasma's Tech2 services are now partially open and able to provide services

    Ideally, you can ask for it to be checked at every service
    As above, it should last to 100K miles
    Once the car is out of warranty and/or above that mileage you may want to half the interval

    Not sure if the cambelt also drives the water pump, if so then it can be wise to replace that at the same time
    Also any other connected or driven belts, replace them at the same time
