I'm new to this forum but have found it a really helpful & interesting read. I'm looking at switching to Audi and an A4 in particular. Was originally looking at the B7 but I've started to notice some fairly decent B8 S line's coming onto the market under the 15k mark.
Anyway, I'm going to look at one on Sunday and the guy said that the 143PS TDI is chain driven when I asked about whether the cambelt had been done (car at around 70k miles). I was a bit surprised that the 143 would be chain driven and I've searched high and low, on this forum and others, and can't find a definitive answer.
So apologies if this is a very simple question that has been asked a thousand times but is the 143PS TDI engine chain driven? And, if not, when should the cambelt be replaced according to manufacturer guidelines?
Thanks and I can't wait to get my hands on my first Audi
