    Oh yes, I done mine when I first bought it. I have no idea about labour costs as I done my own at the time of timing belts ect but I would expect to pay around the £200 range. The chain and tensioner from memory is around £100 - £150

    2.0tfsi has a cam belt doesnt it not a chain? Some one more technical may correct me though but thats what I had changed by local indy!
    Your looking at arround 300 but I dont think you should change it unless due no point bare in mind the tfsi engine is noisy at idle even when healthy I think its some thing to do with the fsi technology I seem to remeber reading!
    If you do get cam belt changed make sure water pump is done at the same time!

    They use a belt for cam to crank timing but the two cams are linked at the rear of the cylinder head by a chain
