    Default ECP or dealers?

    the time is now!!

    all belts and water pump to be changed, however.............

    for the cam belt kit, water pump and drive belt.....

    ECP £204 (choosing all the premium products not the cheapest)

    Dealers £270 and i would have to order in all parts

    Now i my pockets want me to go to ECP's but i dont know weither to stick to GM parts? Conti seems a good reputable company, but just wanted others views

    Cheers

    Trade discounts are different from Trade Club - TC discounts are much higher.

    Can you state your engine and the Vauxhall part numbers you obtained prices for?

    Nope, but I don't see any reason that they should be. Doing fine on my car so far, 6 weeks and 2000 miles down the line...

    true but after alot of time, effort and more importantly ££££'s being spent on the car, i am not putting the cheapest parts i can find in my engine

    just wanted to see if conti parts have a good rep and if anyone has used them

    if not i'd happily pay the extra to get genuine GM parts
