According to VW website, they charge £549

But you could always ring them and ask if that's negotiable.

I'm also getting mine done in the next couple of weeks, a local indy quoted me £500 so on that basis £420 is a good price.

£499 at a Skoda dealership. Same engine in the VRs + 2 year warranty. Why does VW charge more?

When should the belt and water pump be changed?
Mine is a 2014 Gti (non PP) with 26k miles. (I always thought it was a chain in the Mk 7?)

Cheers.

hi there rang the stealers yesterday and after a bit of bartering got the price from 549   to 450  going in next Wednesday ... the women at the call centre gave me 10% off taking it to £499 I said I wanted more so the dealer rang me back and gave it for £450  hope this is a good result

Good result.

Nothing against the indy's, i'm sure they're competent enough. But I just suspect (hope), you'd get a bit more goodwill from VW if there's a major problem later in the cars life if you've done everything 'their' way. However I completely understand the argument for using an indy if they're a good bit cheaper.

Ah yes thanks-I hadn't twigged the GTD reference-I was sure it was a chain but I was beginning to wonder.

Skoda charge £499 for the cambelt, tensioners and water pump but if you call your local Seat dealer they should price match and give you a free 5 year warranty too.
