What is the mileage recommendation to get clutch and Cam-belt changed on a Astra H 1.8 VVT?

Im not close yet I don't think but just wanted to know for future reference :)

It's all in the Service book. Cambelt change interval is 100k miles on the vvt, but I wouldn't leave it that long. 60k maybe, no more than 80k. There's plenty of evidence that cambelts can fail before the official change interval.
Clutch - only when it's worn out.

They usually state an age at which the cambelt should be replaced too as they can deteriorate with age even if within the 100k miles specified. Don't know what this is though

Change on the 1.8 VVT is 100k/10 years.

Buying mine tomorrow and the dealer has changed the belt at 5 years/60k then realised that the belt change was 100k/10 years once it was changed ... certainly saved me a job :D
