Re: 147 6 months in, a few Q's.
Cambelt service is due at 3 years or 36k miles whichever comes sooner. So yours should be due about now (at 3 years). I suggest you also get the tensioner replaced as well.
Doing the above will not affect your mpg which do appear quite normal. My long-term average is about 37mpg, but most of that is a steady commute on the motorway at about 70. Localy about town with a lot of stop and start, then 30mpg is not unreasonable.
Can't help on your boot problem. Would not have thought that the struts would lift the lid by themselves, though.
