It is an interference fit engine and does serious damage if the timing belt breaks, I would recommend doing it at 90,000 miles. For the bear timing belt replacement the labor guide says 4 to 4.5 hours but water pump, tensioner and oil seals would also be advisable to change when you are in there.

I believe you may have a timing chain not a timing belt. If you've kept your engine well maintained for the 90,000 miles there is a chance you don't need to replace your timing chain. I'd consult your local VW dealership before replacing it.
