They'd quoted me £525..... including the water pump. However, there was a bit hassle completing the work, where they had to keep the car overnight, so in the end they charged me £414 for the inconvenience caused :sm4:
I've just had the timing belt changed on my 2015 A4 Allroad 190ps with a CNHA engine code, and I think it had a timing belt cover on when it went in, but doesn't have one on now ??

My 2015 A4 Allroad only has 33k miles on the clock and has been well looked after. I've been quoted £525 for a timing belt and water pump change by a reputable indie garage who I trust with...
Does anyone know the mileage and / or age limit on a timing belt for a 2015 A4 Allroad please ??
