    VX recommends 80K, lol!!!!!! Some of us has replaced it at 40K, I will be having it done at 40K, which would be at least 2011, lol.

        For what reason u having it done at 40k?

        Is this due to upgrades? If so maybe I should be getting mine done!

          I know the old GSi was every 40K, thought the VXR may have been the same?

                        I offer the entire timing belt kit for £75 delivered. But then there is the labour on top. RRP £96.03

                          Would this be covered under 3 year warranty if it snapped prior to the recomended milage change?

                          Also seems some confusion is it 40k, 60k or 80k miles?

                            If the car is standard and still under warranty, it would be covered unless they dealer can prove the car has been abused. The usual conditions apply, regular serviced by the dealer of course.
