Cam belt confusion

I am now at 72k with my 99 2TS GTV. I have somebody 'competent'to do the labour, but am totally confused.
There are several websites out there offering what seems to be pretty good deals on parts for the cambelt change - considerably cheaper than AR. Can anyone offer any advice and where the best place to get them from would be - other than AR.
Also, would really appreciate a full list of all the bits I would need to buy, as I know it is not as simple as 'just the belts'.

As always, any help appreciated.

Re: Cam belt confusion

Just remember there are three belts and a lot of tensioners.
You should replace all of them.

Re: Cam belt confusion

Very competitive prices I think.

EB spares seem to be offer many parts and are well recommended, just searched and found this. Alfa Romeo GTV and Spider Engine/Cam Belt for 1.8 & 2.0

I for one would only want a specialist to do such a job on my car though.
