    Cam Belt Change

    Im coming up to 72000 miles on the clock and thinking it time for a cam belt change. I went to a man i have known for a while and asked him how much it would be and he got back to me saying £200. Never had this done before so not sure what the cost would be? Does that seem reasonable for a cam belt change?

    Haha its already had one done mate, this is not the first. It had one done at 35000. Yea i was just trying to find out what prices people have paid. At the end of the day tho, i would much rather pay the man i know to do it than to let people i dont know do it.

    VX don't fit the full camkit including rollers or change the waterpump unless you ask. They charge £129 for the full camkit alone, just be careful with that one.

    £200 sounds a little high if its just for the cambelt as i've just had the cambelt/waterpump and oil/filter service done for that/
