Passed with flying colours

Hi All ,

Car was in today for 54,000 service and mot (she is 5 yrs old next week) , Passed with flying colours and that including service came to £127 .50 (includes in that changing rear springs for progressive ones)... not bad i thought , while i was there i asked for quote for cambelt change .... £629 ... F***in' hell are these parts made fron platinum , even the garage was a bit embarrassed by the price.
Question i ask is car has done 54,000 miles and will be 5 years old next week ... and as the book says it should be changed 5 years or 72,000 miles whichever comes first ... how important is this 5 years .. reckon i can buy a little time to save some cash for this operation ?

Thanks all ... Chakota
