    70-75000 miles i think mate

    always better to have it done sooner rather than later, so if i were you id start thinking about having it done within the next 5k

    Re: 2000 A3 1.8 T Sport Cam Belt change?

    Audi have a special offer on at the moment for 350

    Mention to them that Stafford Audi have it for 275 on their website and most Audi dealers will bring that down to 300

    Word of warning they don't change the hydraulic damper which is an 85 part or the waterpump (will do for an extra 80 for the pump and coolant)
