hi everyone, I’m up for the service next week with my 2013 a4 b8.5 and just wanted to confirm just in case, the dealer I bought the car from called me and said I’m due for the timing belt change. I’m on 49000m so far from the recommended mileage , is the 5 year change true or just the dealers scam?
Mate of mine had his done at 80000 recently on a5 same year and engine.
Thanks for help in advance

It's 5 years or the mileage whichever comes first.

yep or you can ignore and run the risk of it costing you more than a belt.
