Not sure on the quality of the product, the seller has good feedback though.

I had idelers and tensioner changed under warranty and would have cost £400. The belt was another £66 on top of that

Mine were changed as the bearing were rough.......

Hopefully Alyn (Stockcar) will see this thread and give his professional opinion...

never used them but certainly copies.................how good the copies are would be the thing, some aftermarket parts are as good as O.E.

i would not bother buying cambelt kits for any car unless it is original parts reson being the engine is a vital peice of kit and not cheap to replace i brought an after market cambelt once and a week later the bearings squeeled then seized hope this makes ya mind up

im hearing you guys,mind made up and many thanks for your help,im tempted to shell out the odds and get it done by the dealer (yes i am stupid)i can do this job myself but as the car is on 58 k only 2 k from its major service,it may be worth it for the stamp in the book,
