    Default cam belt done today. in very good time i might add!!!

    just picked up the car from having water pump and cam belt done, guy showed me the state of the old one, covered in cracks and looked well dodgey, old water pump looked extremely dirty aswell, maybe thats just normal i dont know, all done for £250 aswell which i thinkis quite a bargain for cam belt kit and water pump supplied and fitted, must be a good garage aswell coz they had a range rover and last shape m3 in there, i know i wouldnt trust a car like them in the hands of idiots, next job, tyres and tracking!!

    cheers, its the first time ive properly gave it a go, been too scared to before, probably with good reason aswell looking at the old belt, they are very comfortable to drive though, thought they might be a tad stiff being a GSi but handles the lumps and bumps great, good off the mark for a big car aswell, i dont get into traffic light battles much unless its someone trying to get infront of me, but the first things that came next to me at some lights was a tractor..... still floored it at green though
