[V6-12v] Master and Slave Clutch Cylinder Replacemnts

I had my mechanic come over last week to replace the clutch cylinders - in about 2 hours, then put a boot on a CV axle and changed the brake fluid on my 1995 90S Audi.  Today he came back to change the disk brake pads and rotors on my 1999 740i BMW.  Parts for the Audi were about $200.00 and I gave him $200 for labour.  For the BMW the parts were about $250 and I gave him $150.  I felt a bit guilty about the repairs to the Audi.  The semi-dealer mechanic wanted $1600+ for the Audi repairs and the brake repair for the BMW would have cost me $600.  I think I came out OK on these repairs.  

Before this forum loses any more savvy members, I would like to ask your opinions on a particular repair.  Does anyone have anything to warn me about when changing the timing belt on a 2002 Audi A6 2.7T Quattro?  This is coming up sometime next year and I would want to have this mechanic do it.  He looked in his book and it says that it should take about 2.5 hours.  We surmised that this must not be a very difficult task.  However, I would like to know what procedures or removal and installation tricks I must be cautious when I undertake this job.  

Thank you for all your advice and support.
