Hi people anyone know which is best brand of timing belt and water pump for 2011 1.6 MK2 C4

Eurocarparts has timing belt made by ina, dayco and skf
Water pump is either made by circoli or aitex

Which is best? Need to do ours

Unless there another best brand or/and OEM please advise where where we could buy from. Thanks. Dealers are little limited with services at moment with the virus

Probably a little late but mk 2 petrol has the ep6 engine with a timing chain. The same engine is is in the n12 and n14 mini. I just installed my partners chain and guide kit a few months back and went for febi Bilstein.

Unfortunately I'm now up for a water pump and have gone for a GRAF which I'm installing tomorrow.

If doing it yourself read. Read. Read. It's quite involved...and catastrophic if if you don't do it right.

Definitely not something to take on as a novice.
