    Q3 Looking for official advice on Q3 Quattro timing belt replacement frequency

    I'm just about to buy a used 2013 Q5 2.0 Diesel Quattro S-Line with 52K miles and I asked the salesperson if the timing belt was in need of replacing any time soon. He told me that it didn't need to be replaced until 150K. This seems very high; is he correct?

    2005 A6 C6 - Engine hoist hook bolts?

    So, this is kind of a noob question, probably, but my A6 had an engine swap in February last year, after the previous owner somehow managed to blow up an N/A V6. Still a mystery to me how that might happen... Anyway, the engine hoist hooks/eyelet thingies are still on the engine, and I have to...
