It's very important not to neglect your drive belts as a failure will leave you stranded. They're easy to inspect during normal maintenance such as an oil change or refilling your washer tank. If there are cracks running across the ribs, sections missing, the edges are frayed, or the threads are visible on the belt surface, the belt should be replaced immediately. Likewise, pulleys and tensioners should also be replaced as they wear out and will no longer spin well and will affect belt performance, alignment, and lifespan.
All parts in this kit are from OEM suppliers to BMW. As OEMs they meet all of BMW's original design, fitment, and performance requirements and are TUV approved. OEM parts are the best alternative to more expensive Original BMW parts because they are virtually identical without the inflated price tag. All parts have a two year warranty.
