    Just wondering if anyone knows when the timing belt should be changed on a 2.0 TDi Sport. My car is going in tomorrow with having covered 61K miles.

    Cheers

    VW have changed the replacement to 4 years or 60k not sure if Audi reccomend the same. You might want to consider seeing how much a specialest would charge or even try VW or Skoda as there rates will be cheaper

    Yep, eventually found out from Audi customer services that it's 80K, even though I was told 60K from a dealer. If I hadn't of investigate this I would of been out 400 quid a bit sooner that I hoped.

    VW have issued a TSB for the cambelt, i'm not sure why VW quote 60k and Audi 80k, even though its the same engine ... I think in this instance your dealer is right.
