    sorry to do this to you all but could really do with some advice. having the belt done on monday at stealers(best price around, believe it or not)100k on the clock bought the car with 89k on it, belt done @ 80, invoice records no water pump change:scared2:. i want thermostat done, belt, auxs, pullys, tensioners, water pump. my question is, do audi automatically fit the upgraded metal impellar pump, and also, is ther anything else i should have done while the front is off. read something about bolts being changed for pulleys, any advice would be great, also how can i be sure they use uprated pump, they seemed sketchy when i mentioned it

    just off the phone with the dealer, i told them i wasn't interested unless i can fit metal impellar, he's then offered a two year warranty on the thermostat and pump, and 80,000 mile warranty on the cambelt and associated parts. sounds good to me, i do about 25,000 miles a year so i'll probably get it done again in two years.
