    hi all.
    looking at buying an a3 1.6 3dr. 2004 plate 33000 on clock.
    noticing that it's five years old . i take it i would need to remplace cam belt,tensioners,water pump etc?
    seems like an ok price but needing mot in june so was going to get it aa inspected.
    if its due a service, combined with mot and cam belt etc obviously makes a big difference to me.
    would i be right in saying 75000 for cam is about right?
    thanks in advance

    For petrol it is recommended around 75. Although I would personally do every 4-5 years incase rubber perishes.

    Check your pm btw, I may be selling mine shortly.

    yea cambelt change every 5 years, had mine done recently, new cam belt kit and water pump, its best to do water pump at same time as cam belt!
