A colleague of mine wants to know if he needs to change the timing
belt on his '00 (2.7t) S4 at ~50K. Apparently his mechanic says he
should, and wants $1,200 for it.
I know that the factory-recommended interval is 104,000 miles, and I
haven't had mine done yet (at 86K) for that reason. However, there
appears to be *some* lore on the web about early failures, although I
haven't actually read a first-hand account.
Any wisdom? TIA!
