    If the car feels fine and has the right options then getting the cambelt done is a wise move- i will rather have it changed myself than take someone's word for it ! £1600 is not a lot of money nowadays and even if you were to put money towards another car that might still need work as well. Go with your gut instinct and don't be afraid to say no- the a6 ages very well and it's a lot of car for the money!
