    Default What should I do?

    Well its time for the cambelt change on my siggy.. She's done 95k miles now.

    The stealers want 310 for the cambelt change inc the tensioners.. + 200 for a full major service ( whilst the engine's pulled to bits ). My question is.....

    Do I do the waterpump as well? as the pump is 150 quid extra...

    I dont know how long these last and realistically I'm going to need to keep the car for another good few years... so does it make sense to get it done now, or will I end up spending ???'s just changing the pump within the next 50k miles?

    you thoughts please?

    Go to an independant, I would change the pump especially if you are keeping it.

    It's only the additional cost of the pump not too much extra work involved. hth .....
