Default Where to buy cambelt kit..

Morning folks!

I’m looking to get the cambelt replaced on the cabriolet, its the 2.8 v6, and was wondering what belts to go for, what else should be replaced and where’s a good place to get these items from?

TIA

In Aberdeen, about 40 mins away.

Ive been looking online and seems a bit of a mine field! So many different kits, some saying up to chassis number ending 302, and some from 303... then there are loads of v-belts for sale too?

From what i can work out.. kits generally can come with..

Timing belt
Tensioner pulley
Guide pulley
Nut and bolt

And the i can get the kit with

Water pump
Thermostat

So what else..

V-belt (aux belt)
Aux belt tensioner pulley?

And what’s the difference between a poly v-belt and a just a v-belt?

All sorted now folks. Got a kit from onlinecarparts, and an oem aux belt from eBay. Have to say that Aberdeen Audi parts guys were a big help with part numbers, my chassis number and dimensions for the aux belt. Got a water pump and also a thermostat too.
