    am buying a 2001 A4 2.0 auto (petrol), does it have a cambelt and what is the recommended interval?

    Yes it does and the interval is probably 60k or 5 years but check with Audi. Personally I'd change it on a 6 year old card if I didn't know whether or not it had been done.

    115K miles when we enquired. But I would get it done sooner to be on safe side.

    At local garage it was £435 inc the water pump. Audi were dearer. It's quite an involved task.

    Depending on where you are there's an Audi garage in Staffs offering cambelt changes on ebay for £275 (£395 for V6) including 2 year warranty. Just search "audi cambelt" and you'll find them.

    Depending on the fuel/accomodation costs I may be tempted to do this when ours is due.

    Percy, just out of interest, did you used to have a Mondeo and post on Turbosport?

    Nice! I sold my Mk2 Escorts ages ago and really regret it now - can't seem to get decent ones anymore for sensible money.
