    Cam belt change costs?

    My 2.8Q is due for the first cam belt change, about to hit 60k and 8 years old. The garage I normally get it serviced at (independent, but not an audi specialist) has quoted 452, including the tensioners etc, as well as the water pump.

    Does that sound reasonable, bearing in mind it's the V6? Looking at some other posts some people have had this done for more like 300 but that was probably with smaller engines and/or a couple of years ago. I haven't tried the local Audi dealers yet but imagine they would be more ... will give them a call anyway just in case.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    The two Audi dealers near here were charging 515 and 495 respectively. Surprised the independent place is only 40 less, will go with them anyway as they've always been reliable before.

    In 2003/4 I had mine done for approx 360 at Newcastle Audi. That included a new waterpump, bearings and cambelt. At that time I thought it was very expensive until I realised I was paying far far less than everyone.
