just to make a point.. get the camblet done :) might also be worth getting the water pump done at the same time because if it goes after you've just had the belt done, its a pain in the ass because you have to have the belt changed again.

nothing else should really go wrong. But keep in mind, that things like bearings, shocks (possibly), cv and ball joints will also be 60k old and may decide to go one at a time. Don't panic about these items, just do them as necessary. Basically the morale of the story is: Keep up regular servicing, get the belt done, and drive how you always would. :)

My Brava is on 72,000 faultless miles at the minute. You'll have no bother if you maintain it properly. :)
