Timing/Cam belt service interval

I have been contacted by my local VW dealer recently to advise me that they are doing a "special" on timing belt replacements.
My 04 V8 has travelled 107,000Km so I questioned if it was due. They told me VW has revised their recommendation for this service interval and yes it should be done.
My hand book schedules this service for 120,000Km and as it is an expensive job i would rather do it later than sooner.
Anyone had a timing belt failure on a V8? Also be interested how this rates for a DIY project .
