      Well, just swapped the tensioner and belt at a hair over 50k miles. I'm not sure I was experiencing any noise - if any it was faint, but upon removing the old tensioner and spinning it, it was only...

      That was painful to watch, though their info seems to line up well with a dent repair guy that I spoke with a while back.

      When I purchased my S2000, it seemed to have a bit of light hail damage....

      You the man!

      Knocking this out tonight as the parts arrived for me yesterday. Scared to see what the tensioner sounds like once I take it off. :popcorn:

      This. :thumbup:

      Before purchasing mine 3 years ago, I called my local dealer with the VIN to see what had been done. They gave me mileage/dates for the mech replacement and the tank vent recall.

      Bumping this old but useful thread.

      Does anyone know the tensioner bolt torque spec? I have a quick reference guide for the A3 3.2 VR6, but it's unclear on that specific bolt.

      Thanks! :thumbup:

      I hear ya! I figured it was something along those lines. I do the 40k stuff every 35k to be a little more proactive.

      Just did the same, though I think I may actually be hearing some tensioner noise. Very very faint at idle, though I do hear some whining under decent load at high RPM. Great deal!

      Out of curiosity...why the odd intervals? Following Audi 35k DSG service? Haldex is every 40k, no?

      I love it, though it can be a little streaky on a darker car due to the wax content.

      Next on the to do list:

      Brakes all around, pick up a tensioner just to be safe, and an RCD510 to replace the antique MFD2!

      50k that is. It was only appropriate to celebrate with a wash and machine wax!

      Your post is insanely hard to read.

      Warranty on the engine is 5 years/60,000 miles from original purchase date and in-service mileage. Best of luck.
