Audi revised the specified cam belt change interval from 120k to 80k, after a class action lawsuit was brought against them.
However, they have been known to break at around 65-70k. I always replace them earlier as a precaution..

The thermostat is located in a housing, mounted on your engine with the top radiator hose attached. It is relatively easy to replace.
Be sure to put the new thermostat in the correct direction (notice direction of old one before taking it out). Also, be sure to clean the old gasket from the housing and be careful not to break the housing... many are cast aluminum and overtightening a bolt can easily create a headache. :o)
Hope this helps... Good luck!
