    Few buying questions

    After being away from the vauxhall scene for a bit the Mrs has had an offer too good to refuse so I will be back (although its her car) I have a few questions. The car she has been offered is a 56 plate sri 150 cdti with exterior pack, it's done 60k but has full vx service history and its all mway miles and a woman owner from new. We're paying 7700 for it which from what I've seen is a good price for a 150 with xp. The questions are
    1. When do cambelts need to be done on these?
    2. When do clutches normally need replacing?
    3. Are there any things I should look out for?
    4. What are they like to live with?
    5. I will be looking at getting it remapped so where's best?
    6. If i put a stainless exhaust on it with silencers will it make the blowoff sound through the exhaust or does it have to be straight through?

    Thanks

    James

    for the cambelt check the history to see if its been changed? generally recommended every 40k miles i think
