    100K rings a bell, but nearer 70K is always recommended.

    Price can vary, but around £250 wouldn't be too far off.

    pretty much

    Vauxhall says 100k but it's down to you as the owner to make the choice. I changed mine at 80k and all is well

    I was told 10 years 100k for the cambelt & valves clearances by the ever smiling Evans Halshaw VX dealer in Plymouth & Saltash.
    I agree it does seem a long time but, that is the schedule
    Cheers

    i also was told 10 years or 100k, that is why i bought my motor on that condition, i would prefably want a chain and cant really understand why they dont use chains, better made belts probably and hopefully.

    thanks for the feedback, sounds like a good mileage to be looking at before changing!
