Genuine Parts or not

I would like your views on the use of non Alfa replacement spares particularly the following :-
1)*Timing Belt
2)*Timing Belt Tensioner
3)*Balancer Belt
4)*Balancer Belt Tensioner
5)*Advance Variator
6)*Advance Variator Bearings
7)*Camshaft Seals
8)*Water Pump

As I have a leaking water pump and as ever I'm broke at the moment, and thought if I could save myself a few Pounds I could save myself from bankruptcy.

if you need a set of cam locking tools for the rebuild, give me a shout. Personally it would depend on the price differnce for me. The genuine belts are about same price as a pattern belt. The other stuff I would get the cheapest as long as reputable make, i doubt if there are two firms in the world knocking out variators so will prob be same as genuine anyway. Also if you want a set of platinum plugs give me a shout.
