    I think its 60k.
    That's when I'd change mine, and did.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    On some models, including my wife's 99 TT, the service schedule specifies only mileage for the cambelt change. After a spate of 'early' failures, Audi then advised a lower mileage and a max time of 4 years (IIRC).
    S3 Sportback DSG in Sprint Blue with mag ride, interior lights, Bose, parking sensors.

    and...

    Improvements?! None at all but it will save you the cost of an engine re-build when it snaps.
