    Try your local motor factors for a cambelt kit, I used a Gates branded one, which is basically OEM without the VW/Audi logo's.

    S3-Andy,

    What are the Sessanta's like ? been looking at these, they have been getting good reviews and I think they now come standard to BM's. The P6000's I have I think are poor.

    Thanks

    Chris
