    A lot, all filters and new oil. Consider the water pump too along with brake fluid (should be done every 4 years) and coolant - coolant is unavoidable if you have the water pump done. Not too sure on cost but the cam belt will be around £200-250, have the lot done - tensioners etc.

    Try the Tile hill Dealer - if your usung a main dealer - as they quoted me very cheaply for my cambelt
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I did the cambelt on my 120cdti recently and the belt, new tensioner and water pump came to £80 all in and did the job myself, at the time, my car had 95k on clock and the belt,pump and pulley were in very good nick to say they hadn't been changed from new, I'm quite sure they would last 100k with no problems so 80k is not overdue to me.

    Got all mine from an independent motoring outlet, corner shop owned by some non English type people! Don't know where they get their stuff from but its cheap and good! If they dont stock it, they will get it in. Always shop here for car stuff, shop is a mess and has a tyre changing and balancing machine in it and its only a small shop aswell.

    My dealership was reluctant to do it on the second service, until I produced a copy of the service schedule and an email from Vauxhall confirming this

    I have noted that my dealership seems to charge Vauxhall Retailer Warranties Limited a fixed price of £150 for the services on my car, it's been the same price for the last three
    It's nothing more than :
    a visual check of suspension and brakes
    new oil, oil filter, air filter, pollen filter and fuel filter

    The CDTI engines don't need much more than that!

    The cambelt, in the 1.9 CDTI; quotes are coming in at about £200
    However the water pump is also recommended at the same time
    This takes it to about £250
    A coolant renewal may also be recommended, rather than just a check and refill, that will add another £20 to £50

    Maybe, but i had mine changed at 4 years after it was tested and it was fine. Just did it for peace of mind.

    I've always ensure the Brake Fluid was changed every two years and never more than two years and six months
    I was quite surprised Vauxhall increased it to three years, but then again they also increased Service intervals to some ridiculous lengths and then revised them without notifying owners!

    I have only just found out that my own Vectra 3.0 V6 CDTI had been reduced from 2 years / 30K miles to 2 years / 20K miles
    The same also applies to any other 2002 onwards on ECO Flex
    I eventually found it on page 5 of the Mechanical Guide within the VX website
