It's NOT a matter of inspecting it to see if its in need of replacing; its more a matter of, Audi says their timing belts last right about 80k miles, so, unless you WANT to buy a new engine every 80k miles, give or take, you WILL replace the timing belt.

Old lady-driving style, or not... Its designed to last about 80kmiles-ish. Replace it!
