    You Guys back in the Old Country forget how feckin lucky you are when it comes to spare part pricing.

    Thankfully, I still have a good supplier of Genuine OEM VAG parts back in the UK!

    This lot would have come to £579 up here....and some of those parts are not even genuine OEM!

    Full Timing belt kit with water pump and all additional parts
    V Belt auxiliary belt
    Tensioner for auxiliary belt
    4 spark plugs
    Oil filter
    Air Filter
    Fuel Filter
    Cabin Pollen Filter

    Managed to get them delivered to my door by courier Including UK vat for nearly 50% of that!....and I know if I shopped around I would get them even cheaper.

    You have many things to give off about down there....but spare part pricing isn't one of them!

    Happy Hogmanay.....am about to chugg down all the savings I have made over the next 12 hours in expensive beer and spirits!

    V belt is just that v shaped belt
    Poly-v or hyvo belt is the flat type.
    Hence the reason I asked ref vehicle age.
    You can buy engine belts in ikea?
