    Default Full service and Cambelt plus water pump £451

    I have had to take my car for a full service and get a new cam-belt with water pump. Reason being the fully stamped service history cannot be verified and now with 80,000 on the clock i thought it best not to take chances and get it done for peace of mind.
    anyway the point of this post is to ask if i got a good price.

    £179 full service
    £223 timing belt
    £ 49 water pump
    _____
    £451 all in including VAT and labour

    If it was done by a VX dealer you've got a result with that price.Just to be on the safe side,check that they have carried out a full service though,especially if it was an Evan's Hallshaw dealership.I supposedly had one done the other week by them,and all they had done was an oil/filter change,charged me nearly £200!!!.Cheeky sod's.I phoned up and played merry hell with them and got them to do it again.Checked it with a fine tooth comb afterwards. FELIXX.

    I got my cambelt and water pump done for about £150 (Z18XE) but that was in the North East and not by a dealer.

    It was a Nationwide Autocentre (before they changed to the Halfrauds branding) and I'd used them before so thought it would be ok.

    I always do the service myself so can't comment on the price you've been charged for that. Parts usually come to £50+ though and that's at motorfactor prices
