very nearly an expensive mistake, saying that tho was that before or after the service, cos if its after then they would be charging for work they didnt do which is very dodgy

If they are anything like a VR6 there was no definate mileage they needed to be changed. But basically it wasn't the chain that wore out it was the tensioners that got nackered around 100,000 miles ish and would become noisey, this was the sign that they needed replacing and at the same time you do the chain etc...
