Re: Would you buy/fit a used cambelt?

You would be surprised just what people will buy second hand to save a few quid.I was talking to a local car breaker a few months ago and he said that people ask him for second hand brake pads and discs.The prices he charges are probably more than they are new.....

I don't have any problems with second hand parts on the whole,but I do draw the line at cambelts/brake parts etc.They are very much a false economy.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
