    I wouldn't bother with the glowplugs unless you're having problems mate - they're more likely to shear or strip the threads when you try and get them out and don't need regular changing like sparkplugs do in petrols.

    Timing belt and cam belt are the same thing, and due around 100K. Worth doing if you're keeping the car for over that, and a good thing to be thinking about it now but still plenty of time if money's tight. Get the water pump changed at the same time for an extra 50 quid or so.

    But 6 months tax then is 6 months, get a year. Put your car in 30 days early for the MOT and then the timing will be spaced out. I changed my timing belt / water pump at 75k, pump was knackered so would just get that done regardless.

    yeah was going to do 6 months and mot always gets done early but generally vx offer a deal on the mot and service at the same time usually so hopefully will do that
