    Hi all,

    Has anyone had their cambelt replaced recently? Just wondered what a reasonable price would be?

    I've been quoted £280 +VAT from an independent Audi specialist which I thought sounded quite expensive?

    (Also quoted £125 +VAT for a LongLife service which I thought seemed reasonable.)

    As per sig it's a 2001 2.0 Petrol saloon.

    Cheers

    Mike

    £300 is about the going rate, £450+ at a stealer (although some seem to be offering almost competitive rates depeding where you are in the country)

    Make sure they do the water pump at the same time (assuming it runs off the same belt)

    that's a good price! i have a 2.5 TDi quattro and i have been quoted £700 for the cambelt change (inc. tensioners, pulleys, pump etc) and a long life service (all filters, oil, plugs etc).

    what TDi do you have?
