    Belts Continental or Gates get both belts.
    Get the kit with all bearings, bolts and tensioners.
    Thermostat from Audi
    Water Pump KWP or Doltz
    Timing Tools

    Remove Front end
    Lock crank and injection pump
    Remove everything on the front
    Remove vacuum pump and cover
    Clean up
    Fit new parts
    Do Timing
    Refit front end
    Done!

    Actually slightly more difficult...

    I will need a reg number as parts differ slightly but as a rough quote about £370-400 for parts. Beware that audi repair kit (timing belt kit) does not include the vibration damper which is £120 on it's own from dealer. Also job takes 6.5 to 8 hours and it's quite involved- would not attempt doing it you have no previous experience + you need the right locking tools- no mark and pray job on these as i've seen a few with dropped valves due to messed up timing jobs ! Most times is a new head,rod, piston, injector + the engine needs taking off the car which is not an easy job to do on a drive !
