    I think its 60k.
    That's when I'd change mine, and did.

    On some models, including my wife's 99 TT, the service schedule specifies only mileage for the cambelt change. After a spate of 'early' failures, Audi then advised a lower mileage and a max time of 4 years (IIRC).

    well as far as I'm aware its generally 80k regardless of years tbh, but worth asking a few stealers as some would ballshit there way through just for the work, oh yeah they do this I assure you

    What improvements would changing the cambelt make?

    Improvements?! None at all but it will save you the cost of an engine re-build when it snaps.
