[BiturboS4] timing belt interval (from Audi)

I've talked with Audi about the service interval (on my 2.7T A6). The
owner's manual states 104K miles. Audi first said 90K on the phone. When
I mentioned some people had earlier failures (54K in one case), the rep
said, then we recommend 60K... So, what to make of this?
A few questions to the list;
1. Can people send me details of actual failures at <100K miles?
2. Has anyone had the regular timingbelt/waterpump, etc. service done?
Where, How much $?
3. Has anyone priced out the parts for a DIY job? I've done the belts on
2 different 5cyl turbos... thinks look a little different on this
engine! :-)



PS. I'd like to add a Biturbo S4 as my commuter car once the A6 biturbo
6-speed is paid off...
