    I have been looking on Eurocarparts for the required bits for 60k service
    Im talking about timing belt, tensioner and water pump....any other parts?
    does anyone have any idea what items I need ?

    Im not doing work myself but want to get best price. Have a local garage whom I have used in the past and trust quote me 170 for the labour.
    Pennies saved will go into my beer fund....

    thanks

    thats a good price for labour. try some independant motor factors, euro car parts are not always cheapest or best quality!

    id try gsf usually cheaper than eurocarparts - if you get a decent counter guy he should be able to tell you exactly what you need

    And ensure you get the water pump with the metal impeller, not the shitty plastic Audi one, that disintegrates.

    Agreed, get this item from GSF, and you might aswell change your coolant to fresh stuff, so price in a couple of bottles of G12 coolant, and also a brand new auxilary belt since the old one has to come off! ;)
