1998 Audi A4 Question: Timing Belt Replacement Cost

1998 Audi A4 2.8 looking for an estimate on cost to have timing belt,water pump, front engine seals, drive belt, idlers, and tensioners replaced. -
Answer 1
My younger brother has the exact same car. I have to do a timing belt on it. It is a complex job requires special tools. Make sure who ever does the job is competent and has done these belts before. It will cost over $1000 to replace the belt, the water pump tensioners and seals. If the belt is incorrectly installed or breaks it will do a lot more expensive engine damage. -

I bought this 2005 A4 new and it now has 32,700 miles. The dealer recommend a timing belt replacement but is it necessary with so low miles? What should a job like this cost?
