Help with maintenance I should perform

I'm new to owning an Audi
I've got a 57 plate S3 on nearly 57k miles.
At 23k miles in late 2013 it had a toothed belt change, is this the cambelt in Audi talk? And should I get it done again soon?
The last service done on the car before I purchased it was 47k miles and Oil change, inspection, spark plugs, dust/pollen filter changed, multitronic oil changed, air filter and fuel filter were done.
As far as I can tell it's definitely over due a service and when is Haldex Oil change advised? What work should I get done with the next service?

Thanks if you guys can help

I think it's 5 year intervals, in which case it'd be due towards the end of the year, someone else should be along to clarify

Your cam belt will need doing this year and I believe the Haldex is serviced every 40K.
As most people will say, you need to have the fuel pump cam follower checked. It is not a service item but if it wears through the bill can be massive.
Excellent quality oil is essential. A thread on another forum showed the cam follower wearing away very quickly but bargain basement oil had been used. Lots of us use Millers Nanodrive oil at 5W 40.
If the diverter valve is the original it could be on the way out.
Replace with an oem valve revision G or upgrade to a GFB DV+

Take care as it is only a matter of time before you hear about RTech and the magic they can perform on your car’s software!! Then it is a very slippery slope!!

Thanks for your input. Can anyone give me a rough price of how much all that work should cost?
And yeah I’ve heard once you start you struggle to stop

All those service items that have been mentioned add up to what's termed by Audi as a 'Major Service'.
Ask at your local main dealer what it will cost, some are offering free mot's for life if they do the work, worth a haggle as well. Also call AMD at west Thurrock lakeside for a quote, they are VAG specialists.
