    if my v8 s4 doesnt have a cambelt can i jump up and down with joy at the thought that i wont ever have to shell out a fortune on belts, waterpumps and idlers anymore?
    or is there some other expensive service instead? dont know much about this engine so any info would be great!:think:

    with chains they just stretch a little over time and get a little noisy. A friend works for BMW and they do very very few chain changes - it only tends to be on high mile 5 and 7 series (normally over 150k on the clock). Not sure if the water pump problem is still the same on the V8 lump as it is on the 1.8Ts etc
