    Hi
    From memory Audi charge about £400 ish for belt change as part of their fixed price servicing. be surprised if that includes the water pump though.

    I paid £310 inc VAT from midland VW about 2 weeks ago! They did it in about 3 - 4 hours on a Saturday which was good

    Many thanks Murran, I know it`ll be fiddly due the engine bay squash. I`ve a mate who who will do it (when he`s done his kitchen!) with me as his spanner-holder and I`ll only get the garage to do it if he can`t. The local indies £500 sounded a bit much for 4hrs labour when the parts are only about £150. Tim`s £312 from AMD sounded a bit better.

    Cannot recommend Murran enough.. Could definitely tell he had done a fair few before as he had it all done in 2 hours from start to finish and very professionally at the same time.

    Thanks mate :)
