Next week I'm picking up a 2005 2.5 TDI final edition with only 24000 miles on the clock in mint condition and absolutely fully loaded as far a specification.
I want to do some preventative maintenance to make sure it's in tip top condition. So i was thinking baout the following:
*It hasn't had a timing belt change yet due to low mileage, now my understanding is timing belt change is mandatory at 75k miles but advisable every 5 years regardless of mileage. The belt visually looks like new, should i get it done straight away or would i be safe leaving it until it next needs a service?
*I was thinking if changing the oil immediately to a 507.00 spec for engine protection and longevity.
* Gear box oil change, i understand they are meant to be sealed for life and not strictly need changing, but it is advisable to change it for longevity.
Basically just looking for advice on any of the above or anything i haven't thought of, any contribution appreciated!
Also any advice on minor mods to subtly add to it's appeal would be great!!
