Timing Belt on 2003 Audi A4 Quattro

My car has only 36,000 miles on it, but the dealer is recommending I replace the timing belt because it is now 7 years old, and that is the recommendation in the manual. Do I need to do it this soon, given the low mileage? My quote is about $3,000!!

The dealer is right because of the age of the belt, but you can compare prices here www.repairpal.com/estimator and get another estimate here www.repairpal.com/directory best to have a couple of estimates for a job of this size
