Water pump. Aftermarket or OEM?
Might sound like a silly question but I have heard of instances in the past where an after market part is considered better quality than OEM, as well as being cheaper.
It seems a water pump for my 1.8TS can be had for anything from £20 for a First Line pump, up to £40 for an OEM. There are also Valeo, SKF, Dolz, Fai and a few others all in between. This isn't about saving money, as there is only £20 in it, I just want to get the right pump.
So, is there a better pump than OEM?
Ps. I've gone for a Continental Contitech cam belt kit with pulleys and tensioners. If I've made a massive mistake in doing so please let me know
