Have had my Z1 4 years in August.
I think BMW recommend changing your cam belt every 4 years what are your thoughts on this.
I do about 2,500 a year.

So I have been slightly naughty and in the habit of changing the belt every 5 years. Working on the principle that BMW must err on the cautious side when stating service replacement intervals! I always replace the idler at the same time. Also did the water pump last time (@20 years!) as a precaution really, as the bearing and seals must past their prime, and it is certainly convenient to replace it when doing the belt.
