    Hey All -

    My 2001 S60 2.4T just hit about 104,000 miles. Other than the standard tune
    up, are there any other items that I should consider having replaced? If
    anyone has had things start breaking after 100k miles, I wouldn't mind
    getting them taken care of before they actually break.

    Its in the shop now, and they are replacing the timing belt, oil change,
    rotors are warped (seems like you have to replace rotors everytime the brake
    pads get replaced), fuel & air filters, and plugs.

    Thanks,
    Charlie

    Where are you, Charlie ? Around the world, it seems that rotors get
    treated differently. Here in Australia the brake specialists have a
    fetish for machining them flat as often as they get the chance. This
    makes them work better, but takes metal off so that after about 150,000
    km they are undersize and need replacing. In other places, they're
    ignored (my preference) or replaced.

    I notice you have a T. How's that holding out? Like most things, they
    wear, but it's hardly worth overhauling unless you have a problem (or
    $$$ to burn). Hang on and see what the workshop finds.
