My five year old Audi A5 needs £1300 of servicing - is this a fair price?
My Audi A5 will be five years old in February. It's been fully serviced by Audi since new, and covered 38,000 miles. I'm told by the dealer that I now need a new cam belt, oil changed, and gearbox and brake fluid changed. On top of a full service, this will cost £1300. Is this advisable or should I look elsewhere?
Very necessary. New timing belt, waterpump, timing belt tensioner, alternator belt, plus a change of fluid and filter for the s-tronic or it will all go horribly wrong. £1300 is a typical dealer price. An independent VWG specialist should be able to do it a bit more cheaply (or he wouldn't be in business).
