I can vouch for blauparts.com - "complete timing belt kit" for 269.95 w/ free shipping. I just did my belts this weekend on AEB motor and everything you could possibly need to do the job is included in the kit. All German made quality parts. They also gave me an instructions guide and a free Meyle oil filter as a gift. [up]

I can personally verify that anything less than TRUE OEM parts is Russian roulette with a fully loaded gun. I purchased an “OEM” kit from FCP Groton and the timing belt tensioner bearing and dampener failed with in 500 miles, luckily did not skip the belt. When the provided the replacement parts was when I fully realized these were not OEM, I re-read the product description which said “meets or exceeds OE specifications”, and exactly how is that measured? Well in one of my worst decisions, I put the replacement parts on…for another 500 miles until the damper and tensioner bearing stuck down again. Luckily again close to home and no damage. I just put true OEM parts on yesterday and won’t make that mistake again.

For sourcing of what I consider good OEM parts, I use Autohausaz.com and also consider ecs tuning a good source.
