    I have been in contact with my local audi who have a price promise on offer. The deal is for the cambelt to be replaced at £399 incl vat or if you find it cheaper elsewhere they will match the price.

    I have managed to get a cheaper quote from a couple of other local repairers, their price includes the waterpump which they recommend is replaced at the same time as the cambelt. The cost of the waterpump is circa £35 (genuine part)

    However when contacting Audi they will not match the price to include the waterpump and want a further £100 to fit it. Therefore I feel their price match is flawed in that the majority of the time when the cambelt is replaced the waterpump should also be replaced.

    The quote I have had from a local garage to replace camblet and waterpump with genuine parts is £370 incl vat.

    anyone else had any experience of this ?

    thanks

    That price sounds ok to me (£370). Make sure the service book is filled in by the garage.

    I had my Belt and Pump changed at AMD in Essex for £312 all in, never paid more than this on any of my VAG cars so £370 seems a bit much.
    Don't go to Audi, EVER.
