    I believe its 5 years or 75k whichever comes first..........its not just the mileage you have to think about how long in years the belt has been in service.

    I'm not 100% sure on the 3.0, but for the majority of A4 engines Audi state 80k or 5 years, but the accepted thinking is usually that 60k is more than enough.

    Call Audi.

    Many of the books were printed incorrectly in respect of the Cambelt change. Mine was incorrect and was overdue.

    As Chris says, might be worth calling Audi, or a reputable independant specialist, as Im sure there was a change a while ago, as an example, the A/S3 (8L) model are recommended to be done at 50-60k, as opposed to the 80k it says in the book.
