    Cam belt change price does seem very high.

    That sounds like the price of a 3.2 V6 belt change, not a 4 cylinder.

    I'd recommend getting the water pump replaced at the same time as having the cambelt changed. It adds about £30 to the price, but if it goes a few weeks after the belt is changed, as mine did, it's more like £150.
