The accessory belt drives the alternator,power steering pump,aircon pump etc.

Their not expensive,so you'd might as well have it changed.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Especially as accessory belt failure can shred the timing belt on some modern engines. The designs just get smarter and smarter, don't they?

We've got the Clio handbook upstairs, and I'm pretty sure it sets a separate schedule for the 'Sport' models too. I'd change it, but if you don't, be sure to get written confirmation from the dealer that it's good until 72K, otherwise you'll have absolutely no comeback if it fails.
