Coming up on the timing belt service and was thinking about doing it myself. Did the one on my 04 TL which was not to bad, not allot of room to work on that side of the engine but got it done. I see the D needs a few special tools, and the kit looks like its a few $$, anybody have any luck with any of the less expensive tools. I may just bite the bullet and buy the kit if I'll end up saving some money my local dealership said 800.00 Parts and labor for the whole job, I have not priced out parts yet though. If you did the job how long did it take you looks like all data says just south of 4 hours?
