I use to change mine at 70k..[mk2s & mk3s]..

I guess they would book 3 to 4 hours to it...so £3-£400 ish

Yes I think it is kilometers...that works out at 74.4k miles ?

which is where I got the 70k from [i think blush.gif]

No that is 120k Miles not KM for a 1.8T, It should be visualy checked every 20k from 60k onwards miles though.

A rough guide is 60k-80k miles for most recent Diesels and 120k miles for most recent Petrol models.

That sounds ok [plus the vat confused.gif]

If you don't/can't do it yourself, it's not a bad price smile.gif
