    Hi all.
    Other than the normal servicing, I am thinking about doing / having done the following as I have no record of when they were last done (2000 V-Reg, 106k miles):

    Replace Haldex oil + filter,
    Replace fuel filter,
    Change brake fluid,
    Check Cambelt.

    Anyone suggest anything else?

    if you have no previous records on service done, just do not simply check the cambelt. Get it changed and as said above, get the water pump done at the same time.

    I know the cambelt was done at about 75k hence the check as opposed to straight replacement, how often should they be replaced?
    There was no mention of the water pump getting done at the same time.

    Audi originally said the cambelt needed replacing every 120k but changed it to 60k or 5 years whichever comes first.
