$1300 - $1500 is the price for changing the timing belt? Or include the regular oil change servicing?

No harm getting CnC to look over the car since you just got it. My $1300 -$1500 is the higher estimate. If you get their servicing package, will have 10-20% discount. But outside is def cheaper, if they have the expertise. As Markfer said, there are not many with real expertise doing the more demanding jobs for our car. Some will try to bullshit you to say they can but actually they don't even know where to find the air intake filter. Yours is the EAT6 gearbox or the ETG semi auto? Either way, is good (tho my personal preference is EAT6 auto). The cactus is a well designed car. Congrats on your purchase.

You show your workshop the actual car or u just called them? I suspect u spoke over the phone. I ask because I believe they thought your Cactus was using the old Prince engine, which uses timing chain. Your Cactus should be running on belt, as per this website http://www.citroenet.org.uk/miscella.../puretech.html. If so, I don't recommend that you go to your workshop cos obviously they don't know CitroŽn well.
