    Fink Audi Recommend 60K.

    Put it this way, i have a 1.9TDI thats just turned 101K on the clock, it has had the belt changed @ 60K, so it needs doing before 120K, but i'm getting it done soon, better safe than sorry.

    I had the same issue with my recently purchased 2.5Tdi. I emailed Audi customer service and got them to send back a definitive answer in black and white just in case. It seemed that different Audi garages were quoting anything between 60k - 80k, and some unlimited mileage but after 5 years! Recently, VAG withdrew their advice on a blanket-wide figure, but technical support at Audi said 60k and check at every service for my car. I would assume yours would be the same.

    Audi use to say 60k or 5 years but I now understand this to be 40k and 4 years, I was told this when I had mine done last year at 55k miles.

    Not sure how it varies between engines, but the manual for my 2001 2.0 petrol says 115k, which I thought was a little high. So I asked the audi specialist I use when I last had it serviced at 69k and he recommended doing it at 80k. I've just had it done (yesterday) at 77k and when I booked it in he said it should have been done at 60k.

    I said to him that he told me himself it was 80k and he said Audi keep changing their minds. Apparently it's now 60k or 5 years, whichever the sooner. Better to be safe than sorry though.

    As previously mentioned, get the water pump done at the same time.
