The other head gasket died at 191k..
Cam belt and new tensioner at the same time.

Swapped the OE water pump. A bit "racy" but still good.
Fuel pump internal delivery hose split at 195k (pump still good)
Rear brake compensator shagged at 210k
Rear metal pipes need replacing..
At the moment the beast in SORN'd. Those rear metal pipes need to be changed and are no longer available from AR so I need to make them. Also the rear subframe is corroded and I'm going to change it for a newer one at the same time along with the rear dampers might have to be pensioned off - they're the original BoGE units and still good.
Basically your metal bits will keep going till they wear out. Apart from service items, I haven't had to change anything that I've replaced from OE, except tyres, radiator, brakes and exhausts.
