    Had a letter from Southampton Audi last year telling me the cam belts needed changing on my B7 RS4 - plonkers!

    There's an amazing picture on the net of the rear end of the RS4 engine which shows the multiple duplex chains.

    Webuyanycar are a bunch of total idiots then.

    Ask them to send you a copy of the service schedule for the B7 RS4 that specifies the cambelt change interval - they can't because there is no cambelt!

    I bet they're thinking of the B5 which AFAIK does have a cambelt...
