    Just got a quote from these guys
    http://www.justvwaudi.co.uk

    for cambelt/tensioner and waterpump, the total (inc VAT) is £303.50.

    Sounds good to me, they are an audi specialist, Lister Audi Coventry wanted £820!!

    Got mine done for £160, Belt, tensioners etc and water pump and fitted by a VW/Audi specialist (in his own time!) :icon_thumright:
    Used all genuine parts and even stamped the book up for me

    don't get the water pump from Audi, get the upgraded one that uses a metal impeller, not the crappy Audi plastic jobby that just disintegrates.

    normally so i have seen posted on audi/specialist sites is that when they do the cambelt, they also do the water pump and haldex thing. not sure what they do to the haldex but its about £500 roughly. mines a 2000 s3 with 74,000 and still hasn't had the cambelt change.
    is that bad?
