My car will be due a cambelt change in around 5k or in 3 months time - whichever is first.

What kind of prices have people been getting in the Shropshire area? Both Audi and independent.

Cheers :)

I remember Audi mentioning to me when I bought the car that they usually advise to replace the water pump when doing the belt as it saves on labour.

Is this just a scam?

My car has done 45k. How can you tell if the pump is fine or not?

Cam-belt kit, plus pump £300 fitted at a local VAG specialist in Keighley. My mates a mechanic and also get good rates from him so i assume he'll be about the same, he's based in Bingley, West Yorkshire.

Doesn't it have to be a written quote?

Chingford (London) Audi have just quoted me £500 for cambelt and waterpump change.

At the same dealers last year I was quoted £400.

I've also noticed that Audi's fixed price servicing advertised on their website has gone from £329 for just the cambelt to £399.
