    hi all,
    ive just bought 2007 S3 in in ibis white. its done 51k miles, and was serviced by audi 3 months ago.
    i noticed on the audi invoice that its says the cam belt is due in june with a price of £460 +vat

    so i was wondering how hard it was to replace the belt myself, rebuilt a few engines in my time so good on the spanners

    is the any special(audi) tools needed or anything worth changing at the same time.

    cheers All

    I guess the locking tools. Apart from that, new engine mount bolts. best consider all new pulleys and water pump, plus serpentine aux belt.

    Had the TT done at specialist Indy who charged £330 all in incl VAT. IMHO left it to them to do.
