Help got car back after new cambelt

hi just got car back from the garage after having the cambelt changed along with the tensioners , water pump and variator and was wondering if there was anything to look out for to make sure that all was done properly ???
ie. leaks, noises , smells , anything really !!!
have used the garage a couple of times before and i know it has probably been done right cause everything has been spot on so far but have been caught out by dodgy work on my cars before at different garges so am just looking for a bit of peace of mind!!!

Unles you take the covers off you can't see any of the bits they replaced, so not easy to check.

Just make sure the cam belt doesn't leak out of the exhaust pipe

If it sounds nice and goes OK..then it is OK..is my real advice.

From experience (my 145 had 3 cambelt changes), the engine should sound sweeter even if the variator has not been replaced.
