    I would do it just as preventative maintenance. A broken timing belt = new engine.

    Most shops in the GTA sell things for outrageous prices......
    When the CDN dollar skyrocketed past the US dollar, places were still selling their coilovers for like 1450 CDN when you could buy a set from the US for 1000Shipped...

    Just buy the ECS or MJM timing belt kit, go to a reputable mechanic and they will be able to do that for you. I dun think you really need to go to VAG specialist... these days all the mechs have digital repair manuals etc.

    Yes, QMR has moved to a bigger location in Brampton, and I believe has their own shop now over there. Lukasports that used to be in the same shop and did all the installs is still at the Martin Grove + Hwy 7 location.

    Have dealt with QMR many times ( before new owner ) and never an issue, and Lukas has worked on all my VAG cars.

    Go with who you trust.

    ^ 308 cdn, before shipping...

    http://www.importcarpartscanada.ca/S...lt+Kit&mode=PA

    $181, free shipping for orders over 75, and ships from the falls! want a water pump, slap on another 60 bones.
    still cheaper (they're in conjunction with marks bug barn.... good guys..)

    Actually no... it's not, because I got a metal impellor one from them. Even still it could be a plastic impellor waterpump IN the car.

    So let's take the 308, and run it through "thefinalcost.com" even with cheapest possible shipping you're still looking at a landed cost of well over 400 bucks.

    totally NOT worth 400 bucks...
