    Hi guys,

    Looking to order up a kit to get my cam belt changed.

    I have priced up parts from TPS and for a complete kit, plus damper and water pump its £215 inc VAT.

    ECP do the INA kit and I can include a genuine pump from TPS for £160 inc VAT (https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/...6b44e8cd59773127ed53b51017b5be2b471bb5&000336)

    Or there's a full GATES kit with everything on eBay for £106
    (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AUDI-A3-...-Timing-Belt-Kit-with-Water-Pump/201509063039)

    Obviously don't mind spending the money but I'd rather not pay double the price if I won't see any benefit from it.
    What are peoples recommendations?

    My personal opinion after my tfsi engine broke by genuine or buy twice as the quality will be there as your running a unnecessary risk in my opinion for Chinese copies that my or may not hold up. If it goes wrong you can pop to TPS with your receipt and get a new one or they can cover some of the damage costs if other components end up damaged because one part failed.

    Hi.

    I changed mine last summer. I used the Gates kit with water pump. Working perfectly. My Gates part number: KP25491XS. It is better to buy a local dealer because if u got something problem with it, then so much faster to solve the problem.
