    Asim,

    You're dead right...

    The water pump though...I know the garage pushes you that way but the pump should be good for 80+... Gms testing for that represents a 10 year life span.

    What do you think?

    i agree, i did my timing belt, tensioner and tensioner bolt at 40k, but i didnt do the water pump, cars on 49k at the mo and should be good to go up until 80k, untill then just minor services needed (oil etc) hopefully.
