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?
