    Timing belt question?

    Any body herd of a timing belt for a 1998 TDI with a 160,000km change interval?
    I know that for the 2002 TDI's and on they upgraded , but they do not fit the A3 engine types in the 1998 models. I have found that the max interval for the A3 t-belt is 100,000km is this true?

    i generally don't push a timing belt much past 100k on ANY engine, i don't care what the "recomended" change intervals are, a belt is a lot cheaper then an engine rebuild.
    Well, excuse me, for having ENORMOUS flaws, that i don't work on !
