Re: TS cambelt change after 3 years, no use ?
Interesting thread this one.
My car is 8 years old, I have owned it for 6 years and given it one cam belt change, bang on 36k about 4 years ago. It now has 43k on it and I was not planning to change the belt any time soon - yet I certainly don't consider myself to be scrimping on maintenance nor does my car get a hammering.
Maybe I ought to have a rethink - but Spiders are often low mileage summer vehicles - so every 3 years does seem a tad excessive on a low miler.
A wider poll of low mileage Spider/GTV owners will either confirm or change my opinion.
