You've probably considered it but, just in case, you'll want a new thermostat O-ring
gasket. Some thermostats come with them, some don't.

Subject: [Biturbos4] Time for timing belt... what else?
I'm just rolling up on 80k miles on the S4 and am starting to collect
the parts for a timing belt job. To amortize the labor cost, I'm going
to take the shot-gun approach and replace all the wear items around
the front of the motor. Here's what I'm looking at so far:
o timing belt
o all timing belt tensioners/idler rollers
o water pump
o serpentine accessory drive belt
o all serpentine tensioners/idler rollers
o all associated bolts, gaskets, fluids, etc.
So what am I missing? If this was your car, what else would you replace?
I'm going to take the opportunity to make a few gratuitous
improvements, too. I'll probably replace all the rubber bits in the
intake system with a silicone hose set, and perhaps I'll spring for an
RS4 oil cooler kit....
