Time for some TLC - what do I need to do?

Right, I think its time I gave the car some TLC. What I'm gonna get my mechanic to do is:

> Full Service
> Cambelt + Tensioner Change

With full service, what should be ensuring he does?

Brake fluid, gearbox fluid, oil, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, cabin filter, look at brakes (shouldn't need any attention as I've dealt with those recently).

Anything else?

Also .... For cambelt, I'm assuming you must change both pulley and tensioner with the belt. Worth changing water pump at same time?

Any glaring missing areas in my plan?

Ta guys. Just wanna make sure I ask him to do the right things!

Ins.

Good call. Didn't think of that.

Apart from timing belt, any others to consider tho?

I'm aiming for peace of mind here.

Have a look on http://www.powerfiat.co.uk and see what he includes in his belt change and full service. He covers almost everything.
