    Default Cambelt

    Its 10 years or 100k if you go by the book.

    It wiser to do it sooner though so get it done ASAP.

    was the first thing i did when i bought my 07 plate on 54k as i had no proof it was done.

    my father in law kept the old belt for me to have a look at, it had started to perish and go brittle so well worth doing

    Got mine done at 75k as I thought 100k was a bit far!

    Done my 07 around 32k iirc / 9 years.

    To be fair it was in good condition but I really wouldn't risk it, especially if you can't do engine work yourself

    I go for 6 years or 60k.

    Really do not trust it over 10 years or 100k.

    Think Vauxhall actually recommend 6/60k for the VXR’s
