Default ttime to replace the timing belt 2001 a6 2.8l

2001 A6 2.8l 30v engine
now reach 68000 miles?

I bought is two years ago on 40000miles. I heard audi timing belt worn also by age.

I plan to take a 4000miles roadtrip next month. Should I wait to 80000 or 100000 to replace or I should do it now?

Do it now. It's not so much the old timing belt as the old water pump, tensioner, idler bearings, etc.

I bought a 2002 A6 about a month ago with 89k miles on it. I did the timing belt replacement right away - the belt had stress cracks on it. The bigger problem though was the water pump had a small leak. My mechanic charged about 1k to do the timing belt replacement. I'm not handy with tools so better to pay the piper.
