    Think my manual suggested 115k km rather than miles which makes that 71.5k miles for a cambelt change..

    Maybe got lost in translation like the way everyone thinks S3's etc are 210/225 hp when its ps (207hp/221hp)

    5 yrs and 60k would be what i'd do. Iv'e heard of belts letting go a few miles before it's "due"

    Always best to change it early, better safe than sorry, I bought my S3 Sept 2012 at 62,000 miles and had it changed, I changed it again in Nov 2011 at 105,000 miles because the clowns at Audi didn't change the tensioner damper the first time. As Tuffty says do the tensioner damper and waterpump at same time.
