    Oh yes, don't worry there is a mutual respect for him and his tools! Haha

    Just got off the blower and the results are as follows -

    Main dealer - 590
    Local VX specialist - 325
    Dad in law - 200

    I didn't mention him showing me how to do it cos he might have charged more then! :P

    He did say that while he was doing a search that it didn't need doing until 72 months (6 years) or 80k miles. Mines on 49k and just over 5 years. I'm sure though that I read somewhere that it's every 5 years? Or was it all a dream??

    While I'm at it, would everyone suggest sticking to dad in law with the actual service aswell or would we look at the specialist?

    Good price with the in law . I would take the recommended Vauxhall intervals with a pinch of salt, water pumps normally come in to play in a cambelt change and could go before the belt. I'd much sooner do an 'early' change for peace of mind than have the headache of a snapped belt. Same vote again for the service
