Hi guys, I'm going to be getting the cambelt and water pump changed on my GSI soon but I wanted some opinions on whether to use genuine GM parts or aftermarket.
Here are some figures -
Genune GM Cambelt kit for approx £150 vs a Gates Cambelt kit from LMF for approx £100. I've heard good things about Gates kits but is it worth saving the £50 on such a vital component?
Genuine GM water pump for approx £140 vs a pattern part on eurocarparts for approx £30. This is huge difference in price and I'm worried a £30 water pump won't last very long. So which one should I opt for?
