Take the risk! You are only just over mileage...and you're booked in for the new one??!!

If it gives up on the journey then I'll contribute 50 - just get another 99 other forum members to match my offer and that should cover the cost of the new engine if required!!

A new engine is approx 3 times the cost of a belt change - if you did the journey 3 times how many times would the belt fail under similar circumstances??!!
