Gladly, I stand corrected.  Sounds like you made a good purchase Roger.

As to Kent's mention of a time limit on a t-belt, I agree in 
principle, but I think 5 yrs is a little short.  Case in point is the 
wife's Jetta (1.8t).  The t-belt is checked at 40k and 80k, but 
replaced at 105k: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2319958 
.  How many people are going to do 105k in 5 years?  I haven't seen a 
specified time limit, but 10 years would seem a reasonable amount of 
time to get to 105k miles.  If the belt was changed in 2001, it was 
probably 11-12 years old then, and perhaps done for that reason.
