You don't say what mileage in on the car.
Timing chain stretch is normal wear and tear and worsens if the car has lead a hard life. My wife's VW Jetta suffered a similar fate with bent valves at 55k miles and a new engine was £6k. If my car ever reaches that mileage, I'm having the chain and tensioner replaced at 60,000 miles as Audi overestimate the life of these parts.
