Service and MOT advice sought :)

Hi all,

My Clio is due for it's MOT in June and I want to get the ball rolling now unlike my sister who left it to the day before, still hasn't got it back (2 weeks) and it's cost her 600 already.

According to the Service booklet, the last service was done when the Garage I bought it from in June 07 acquired it - 12,911 miles. She's now done 15,078. Whilst the booklet was stamped, they did not tick what work was done and so I don't know what to have done? I don't know when/if the cambelt was done either. So...

1) Can a mechanic find out when the belt was done by looking at the belt itself?

2) Is it worth gettiong the whole lot done (Plugs, Oil , Filters etc)? The only other service stamp before the garage's was a Renault done crica 10k and that ticked Plugs, Oil and something else listed (booklet is in car, memory is frazzled from College work).

Being a first time car owner I need some much-valued guidance!


Currently in tankface's garage:
2006 Black Magic Seat Leon Sport TDI DSG
