    Timing belt kits - brands?

    a certain supplier of Parts for European Cars has 25% off spares again,
    they have a Contitech kit [£56] or SKF [£63] kit... discounted price
    are either any good or should I look elsewhere?

    Thanks!

    Either are good price but make sure the kit included the relay roller not just the tensioner and the belt ! I used the Contitech kits for years and they are really good quality and Made in Germany !

    They wont come with the damper i dont think. That`ll be seperate(if the diesel has one like the 1.8t that is..if not ignore that). Is from VW/Audi anyway and its another 130odd ontop. Both makes are alright. Conti probably being the better though but doesnt mean the other is completely useless.
