When should I change on the cambelt on my Audi A1?

Audi recommend changing the cam belt after 5 years or 110,000 miles. Should it need changing after 6 years and only 32,000 miles?

Yes, all of the components of the cam belt and water pump are susceptible to age-related wear. The aux belt, for example, deteriorates over time - if it fails, it'll kick the belt off and wreck the engine.
