    yes change the oil filter as well. the water pump tends to go after a new cambelt has been fitted so change them both. you can get service kits from ebay

    since you already have the plugs and air filter i would go for

    oil + filter
    fuel filter
    pollen filter
    cam belt + water pump and pullys - its all comes in a kit from vx (£200) i was told.
    brake fluid - DOT 5 is good to use or racing/sports fluid

    And if you wanted to do the full works since its in for MOT and service you could have the anti-freeze changed (i know its sopposed to be long life but i would still change it) and then gearbox oil if you really want to go the full hog!

    sorry i dont have any part numbers, gordiebandit is good for them.

    I dont think you will need a new water pump. When I got my cambelt changed at 35k ish in May, the chap at Vaux recommended I get a new roller bearing (or something - not expensive) for the water pump at the same time - so I did that and so far water pump has been fine. Maybe if this is overlooked at cam belt change this could cause the water pump to eventually fail??
