Heck no. I think the 80k interval is a ruse to get them to see and hear the motor on these cars if they make it that long with the chain driven balance shaft. With that said, I will have mine done when the current belt has 85k on it. I'll have it inspected and if it needs it sooner than fine. Oilhammer told me that many 100k belts look fine. I had my timng belt etc. replaced while Oilhammer was doing the BS gear conversion.
2015 Golf SE TDI with DSG, 61k.
2005 Passat GLS TDI - RIP, 208k miles. Many good memories and friends made with this car.
