    My car will be due a cambelt change in around 5k or in 3 months time - whichever is first.

    What kind of prices have people been getting in the Shropshire area? Both Audi and independent.

    Cheers :)

    Blimey that's expensive!! Was that purely for the belt change or did that include anything else within the service?

    I remember Audi mentioning to me when I bought the car that they usually advise to replace the water pump when doing the belt as it saves on labour.

    Is this just a scam?

    My car has done 45k. How can you tell if the pump is fine or not?

    Cam-belt kit, plus pump £300 fitted at a local VAG specialist in Keighley. My mates a mechanic and also get good rates from him so i assume he'll be about the same, he's based in Bingley, West Yorkshire.

    Audi are going to charge me £250 upto now for belt and pump. They told me they can beat any genuine quote so I'm still trying to beat £250 which I got last week haha

    Chingford (London) Audi have just quoted me £500 for cambelt and waterpump change.

    At the same dealers last year I was quoted £400.

    I've also noticed that Audi's fixed price servicing advertised on their website has gone from £329 for just the cambelt to £399.
