As for cambelt change,then the water pump is always advisable,as is the auxillary belt.In a decent independant garage you'd be looking at 400 all in for the job.
I had the cambelt, auxillary belt and water pump changed yesterday on my scenic at a local garage, cost me 250.

I can get 4 liters of fuchs full synth for 16.50 + vat - fuching great!

Welcome by the way, and I can honestly say this is the first place I visit when I need help in something.
a lot of garages will replace the EGR valve, which is relative quick and easy. However, most do not clean the galleries and ports unless specifically asked to do so. My local dealership told me it would be a 4-5 hour job to do this. I did it myself ( with a Haynes manual ), first time in 1 hour 45 min.
