There are enough cam belt system failures between 60,000 miles and the 90,000 
or 105,000 
Audi recommended change interval to justify a shorter the interval. The high 
repair cost of a failed timing belt is the real reason for such conservative 
behavior. Search the Audi World forums for the prices paid and you will find 
some very large repair bills. Early B5 cars had a very weak design
cambelt tensioner, later cars are much better. I do not have very much B6 
experience just with the continuing problem with sludge clogging the oil pump 
pickup screen.
