Re: quick questions.
The fella has to be serviced at 12,000 mile intervals, so assuming your was done on time, the last service "just before you bought it" would have been at 72,000.
If the cam-belt and tensioners were changed, they'll run to 108,000 now - the change interval is now 36,000 miles.
Next service is 84,000, though an oil/filter/airfilter change at 78,000 won't hurt.
If your fella didn't have the cam-belt and tensioner changed (i.e you don't have a receipt for it - don't take the garage's word for it!) change it immediately and then get back onto the official schedule. Next service 84,000 etc.
Exhausts depend on how long you're going to keep it. A stock mild-steel system will last 3 or 4 years. Genuine parts will last 5 or more. Stainless can be built to fit and will last forever but then it costs 50% more than a genuine Part pipe, so quite right too!
My view is that a good system that costs twice as much but lasts twice as long is better than a half the price, half the life system, as you save all that arsing about changing it.
