    Febi cambelt kit and damper

    are they good? need to replace the cambelt soon adn was just wondering if Febi would be safe to use...

    Looking on vwspares at these:

    http://www.vwspares.co.uk/product_in...roducts_id=212
    http://www.vwspares.co.uk/product_in...roducts_id=215

    and

    http://www.vwspares.co.uk/product_in...roducts_id=147

    costing much less than the dealership price.

    Thanks

    is it?

    vagparts, gsf and Euro Car Parts sell cheaper than dealers, does it mean the quality is less? I doubt it...

    that's why I was asking about Febi

    i said ask why....i didnt say it wasnt worth it.....you buy Audi bits you pay the premium for the certainty of knowing the parts are genuine....as it happens there are a few on here in the 'know' and 'know' that a certain brand of cambelt is the very same that supply VAG.....

    like i said, ask the question...... simple

    I personally havent heard of Febi before. But i do know that Gates and Conti do a kit with the hydraulic damper included and are very reliable manufacturers. Cant comment on the Febi one though im afraid as have no experience with them!
