    depends on what engine u have - they range from about £40 for a X16SZR upwards. What engine/year have u got and I can find out for ya. The stealers..oops i mean dealers will usually charge about £250 all in....but 16valvers will usually require a water pump fitted at the same time which will drive the cost up. 8valvers and it may be advisable to have the thermostat fitted at the same time. So more vehicle details required and we can give u a rough idea of costs.

    If u check out the following seller on ebay - he's got loads of kits - just email him with ur car details and he'll do the rest:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-Timing-Bel...QQcmdZViewItem

    1.8 16v I'm guessing its the Z18XE model so will be £71.50 + £4.99p+p from this seller... I and pretty much ever one esle on AS will strongly advise u get the waterpump fitted at the same time as the old one (if u dont have it exchanged) will no doubt go tits up under the pressure created by the new kit. I havent got a price on the pump but I cant see these being a major cost. Good luck and hope this helps in some way.

    Check out a seller called PavingSlabs on E-Bay, He sells the kit for the 1.8 engine for £39.99 usually. It's an auction but if you wait long enough you'll find one that has little interest and you can get it real cheap.

    His are genuine Vx parts not pattern ones, they come in Vx boxes etc and consists of the belt and both pullys, you can get the water pump from AutoVaux for £22 approx.
    52 Astra G 1.8, 18" Mille Miglia alloys, 325mm Brembo 4 pot conversion, Coupe leather interior, Raid strut brace, Whiteline rear ARB, Irmscher bits (skirts, Carbon steering wheel, Bonnet extension, M3 mirrors, boot & roof spoiler), Reiger Rear Diffuser & Front Bumper, Koni Adj. dampers, 35/30 Vogtland springs, Duplex quad exit ASCAR stainless exhaust.
