Default Best place to buy a cambelt kit for KV engine?

Changing the cambelt on the kv quattro type 85 and just wondering where to buy from?

Also looking for a new water pump too.

I use Autodoc. Loads of choice, brilliant prices. Only drawback is 8 postage (and slow postage as shipped from Germany) if the order is under 140-odd quid but you'll save the 8 as prices are so low. Discount % varies daily. Well worth downloading the app (or visit their website) and having a look. You get better prices using the app.

Just bought a Continental cam belt and SKF water pump and idler pulley. They didn't stock a kit that I fancied for the 90 20v so selected the parts individually. There were lots of other choices of manufacturer for belts, pulleys and pumps covering all budgets.

Another vote for Autodoc. The choice and value really is great if you can wait a couple of weeks. If not, I've found Parts in Motion very quick and also pretty decent value, they list on eBay but also have their own website.

Cheers guys!

I presume the b2 2.2L coupe GT has the exact same cambelt kit and water pump?

I ask because some sites don't recognise the CQ as a 'match' .

Should be ok as long as you get one for the KV engine (fitted to Coupe Quattros and some GTs).

re Autodoc

What sort of import fees and taxes are people getting asked for? Is it every parcel is 20% VAT and a handling fee?
I stopped ordering from the EU after Brexit for this reason.

I've used autodoc regularly post Brexit and the taxes are all factored in
