    this crops up here quite a lot, so have a go at doing a search, but I paid £165 (1.8T). Someone said that seemed a bit cheap the other day here, but it was just an audi specialist (phil mitchell stylee), and it was part of my 80k service, if that made any difference!

    FrOgR - I assumed yours was 120k because you'd already had one cambelt service done. Are you telling us that 120k was the FIRST cam belt??

    Just putting mine in for a 10k service at 110k miles, last cam belt change was at 79k. Garage suggested I have it done, sounds a bit premiture to me so I said no, any suggestions?
