Dayco is Italian IIRC and supply the original belts.

I have a Dayco belt ready to go on my GTV when the weather warms up a bit.

Which size engine are we talking about? What's included in the kit?
If it's for a basic 1 belt,1 tensioner,1 idler four cylinder kit,it isn't cheap at all!

Buypartsby sell the Contitech equivalent for around £55 (Approx €60)

The tensioners are identical to the ones in the dayco kit and only the belt is different. Contitech is a reputatable brand as well.

I paid £100 for the kit for my V6 from ebay, and that is cheap.
