Re: 156 2.5 v6 72k service at 60k (cam belt)
I had mine done as I had no history on the car, mine had covered 168,000 miles, price was just over £550 by an indie in Poole.
As Pacs said it should be replaced every 5 years or 72k miles, but some people get them done around the 60k mark as the variator can go and take the belt with it.
Best to be safe. Engine didn't have to come out on mine, but becaise I had the LPG conversion it took a little longer.
