Ah, that's fair enough then

Just to add to this thread, just booked my Golf into a local VAG specialist - they've offered 480 to change the cambelt and electric water pump using genuine parts including VAT, with a loan car.

VW wanted 549, plus 20 for insurance on the courtesy car. Saving of 89.

Are you getting an aux belt aswell? I always get a new one when I get the timing belt change.

Nah, it's super simple to change that as and when, and if it fails it won't damage anything. Can't say the same for the cambelt!

That's it done and aircon as cold as ice! I just always get the aux belt changed as there's probably not much chance it would last until the next timing belt change so may aswell change it when the old one is off.
