Also, why is a belt change so expensive? On my Ferraris, it was because the entire engine had to be dropped out of the car to allow access to the belts (~40 hours of labor involved in the belt service). Is that the case with the Spyker?
You should. Just not your standard Audi tech. Every procedure is unique, but we have a lot of the shop manual when you need it.

The engine needs to come out for the belt change. The rear clamshell needs to be taken off.
