    1.8vvt mine has done 62k but im doing mine because ive just got it. Its got full history but you can never be to0 safe when it comes to the belt. I would advise not leaving it too long unless you have owned the car from new and you can be 100% sure of the milage.

    If you get a kit you get the tensioner as well
    Water pump is run off auxillary belt so no need to change unless necessary
    I will do mine at 60k to be safe

    That was for older engines fitted to the Vectra-B (between 1997 and 2002).

    See bishbang's post further up for the recommended change intervals for the 1.8 engines fitted to the Vec-C
