    Plenty of threads if you search on here
    But ignore the book, it is 75k or 5 years whatever the comes first for the 2.0tdi 143 B8.
    If in doubt get Audi to check based on chassi number.

    vcds can read the mileage in the ecu np . it is 133,000 miles for cambelt ,but would you risk that for the sake of a few hundred quid .

    Where did you find info on locking the engine, torque settings etc?

    How long did it take to do it? What has to come off to make space to do the job?

    got setting off a friend...works at audi.

    front bumper,undersheild,bumper beam/bar,then cambelt covers,remove all bolts from front end and pull all front forward,gives enough room do the job....took me around 5 hours,but i had alot of breaks,and did it at home.......i could do it in about 2-3 hours now.
