    Should be replaced every 40,000miles or 4 years,so yes should be changed,price wise an independant might do it a little cheaper but while its in having the service done i think i'd have the cambelt done at the same time,imo......

    Sure someone will put me straight if i'm not right........

    phoned a few other places and got similar prices, so phoned dealers back and asked them if price was including vat and he said yes and can be done today so ill let them do it as its there, wont need to worry about it then for next 4 years!!!

    Ah yeah, have you tried Picador? I had good service from them some yrs back, well the one at Sholing anyway, more than I could say for the chip shop at the end of the road.

    bit far away to go for me as i live in shirley, i can leave mine at hartwell and walk home, sholing is couple of busses away. otherwise i would use them, they have advised changing brake fluid and said brakes need doing too but will get them done at kwik fit or another place of the like. kwik fit has a very good guarantee on brakes if i remember, free for life after you had em done once

    As it a 1.8 I'd recommend getting the water pump done too
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
