A few weeks ago I asked for advice on a new timing belt for a 2001 AUDI A8L, 4.2 Quatro. I was told that $1K was a reasonable price for replacement, including the water pump, tensioners, etc.

I contacted 6 foreign car repairs shops in Tucson, AZ for quotes. The quotes ranged from $1065 to $2575!! I had it repaired at the lowest price which included everything, parts, sales tax, etc.

Thanks for your help.

It is always good to hear back from posters. Glad things worked out
