    Hi Guy's,

    New to audi

    I've just purchased my first audi a4 sline 58 plate - with 67,000 on the clock.

    i was just wondering should i wait until i hit 75,000 mile to get the timing belt changed or shall i wait until the 5 years is up which is in october 2013.

    Also shall i go to audi dealer to get the belt changed or a audi specialist?

    can anyone recomend any audi specialist in westmidlands.

    thanks in advanced.

    75000 or 5 years which ever comes first mate.

    I would do it at Audi, as they do fixed price for service items now for cars over 3 years.

    See here Fixed-price servicing < Servicing with Audi < Owners area < Audi UK

    Cam belt £439 :)

    Mine is due July 2014 (5 years) but I am at 64500 so will do it at 75000, as I recon that will come first.

    I'd get it at 75k, the manual says 114k but u ask the dealer they say less. Make sure u get waterpump done at the same! I'd use a specialist but if there's not much difference in price may as well go for audi.
