    Cambelt due in feb.....

    The cambelt is due to be changed in February next year as it was last done in 2009. Am I living on borrowed time if I wait until then to get it done? Or should I get it done now? Obviously with Christmas coming up, not got a lot of spare cash floating around at the mo.

    Is the 5 year rule accurate, or are they likely to fail close to the 5 year period?

    Mods wanted/planned: Wheel spacers, moar silicone, 3" downpipe, decat, debadge rear rings, spray front rings, 8P/V gear knob, REVO!!!!!!!

    MISC: Sort out paintwork

    Because It Makes No Attempt To Be Great, It Is Therefore Extremely Great.
