Yes they did offer 429 for cambelt, but as per my original post, water pump and other drive belt on top takes it to 574.
vw said they do it all for 440.
question is all servicing, warranty work, etc done by same dealer since new - if i suddenly use vw for this job now does that look bad on my service history (ie could it put someone off when come to sell) or because its vw (same engine as a golf) makes absolutely no difference??
also looked at audi 'procedure' last night on EKTA - jeez that seems like a monster job - disconnecting exhausts, removing engine mounts and 'hanging' engine off front wings with a special cradle!!!! slightly worrying!
WTF £574 Do you really think that's value for money? last year audi offered cambelts for £275 now £429.
Parts approx £100 £329? labour. The guy doing it would get approx 2-2.5hrs on the ticket to do it.
Whats wrong with independants??
Do you really think you'll get that back come sale time. On my old S3 8L I had everything done at the stealer. After 7 yrs i'd spent 3k+ I got top dollar for it but no more than A1 private.
Keep your options open people!
