    Cambelt change prices

    My car will be due a cambelt change in around 5k or in 3 months time - whichever is first.

    What kind of prices have people been getting in the Shropshire area? Both Audi and independent.

    Cheers

    Blimey that's expensive!! Was that purely for the belt change or did that include anything else within the service?

    I remember Audi mentioning to me when I bought the car that they usually advise to replace the water pump when doing the belt as it saves on labour.

    Is this just a scam?

    My car has done 45k. How can you tell if the pump is fine or not?

    Cam-belt kit, plus pump £300 fitted at a local VAG specialist in Keighley. My mates a mechanic and also get good rates from him so i assume he'll be about the same, he's based in Bingley, West Yorkshire.

    Doesn't it have to be a written quote?

    Chingford (London) Audi have just quoted me £500 for cambelt and waterpump change.

    At the same dealers last year I was quoted £400.

    I've also noticed that Audi's fixed price servicing advertised on their website has gone from £329 for just the cambelt to £399.
