    My usual recommendation is stick with the service intervals while the car is under warranty
    Once the warranty has expired HALF the intervals
    I suggest the cambelt at 3 years / 40K miles

    Equally, there is nothing wrong wth doing this during the warranty period, if you plan to keep the car for some time
    Just be aware it doesn't increase the value, but does enhance the resale value and make it easier to sell
