Cambelt Advice Please, Thanks

Hello. I think Im sitting on a time bomb.
Just taken notice of my Odometer and realised it has now done nearly 110000miles. Ive had it for 13000 of it in this last year. I have a sneaking thought that I need a Cambelt change.

Can anyone tell me if its a thing I should be doing asap due to mileage. Couldn't find any service shedule information past 72k miles?

Anyone had any dealing with AutoLusso in Bedfordshire? kinda like the look of them.

Cheers Chris

The cambelt and tensioners should be changed every 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Sounds to me as though it defiantly needs doing and we would be very pleased to do the work for you.

Re: Cambelt Advice Please, Thanks

Thanks for all your help guys. I think im going to be visiting Autolusso very shortly...not just for the Cambelt though hehe.
Would like to check it in to a Saturday Morning healthcheck and see if my baby is a solid as I think but also to talk about the possibilties of getting a new one hehe makes me giddy with excitement. Thinking 159or GT mmm tasty.
Anyone know what the new equivilent of the Selespeed is? Is the the Qtronic?
I have become a very lazy driver when it comes to gear changes because of my Selespeed but Im not sorry and I wont change back now haha
Thanks Again

Auto's are very self indulgently lazy, I love ours, no brain needed

Good luck with the fixing/selling/buying/etc.

I'm not sure if there is an equivalent of the Selespeed. The Selespeed is a manual gearbox with automatic control, whereas I believe the QTronic is a normal automatic.
