    I wonder if anyone can help me? I'm trying to source a drive belt for a 2007 F800s in the UK but don't really want to pay top money. Any suggestions (sensible) would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Because BMW in Stuttgart told me the belt drive costs 320 euro here.

    I wonder if that "timing belt" is specified as a timing belt on some vehicles. If so, it'd be interesting to know the recommended replacement interval. You'd think the inside of an engine would be tougher on the belt (heat, revs) than on our bikes. Or maybe not.

    If it is, it must be off a large commercial vehicle, it's huge!

    The words "timing belt" on the packaging are confusing.

    If it helps, when the word "Zahnriemen" is split into two sections, ie "Zahn Riemen" it means "Tooth Belt" or "Tooth Strap" in English. I can only guess that Continental have slightly mistral slated it into English.

    Belts that are designed to run on toothed sprockets or cogs are generically referred to as "timing" belts,(in English anyhow), regardless of whether they are used as a precise means of timing the rotation of two or more sprockets as in camshaft drives or simply power transmission as in our bikes, supercharger drives, compressors etc. Just engineer's shorthand, that's all.

    Just tried to order a belt through this company and received a 'phone call the next day asking me to supply photos of my credit card and passport. Apparently this was for 'security checks to confirm you are who you say you are and the delivery address is correct'. They then sent me an email and asked me to send the photos to them by email return.

    I 'phoned my bank who advised me not to send this info (no surprise there) as they should have sufficient info to verify the details without the need for further id.

    I went back to the website and did an online chat (as I didn't know whether the given phone number was premium rate) and was told that I could use an alternative payment method, ie paypal, and the money would be refunded. It seems that paypal is already verified whereas the credit card is not (so they said).

    Of course, I asked for the order to be cancelled and a refund of the original payment and, once I had confirmed it had been returned, then I would place a new order. I'm told it will appear on my statement within 2-3 days.

    So, has this happened to anyone else? If so, how did it go? Really interested to hear.

    Thanks for that, it's really helpful. I still feel uneasy, however, so will wait to get a refund before trying Paypal.

    Now that I have done a bit more research it appears that many people are asked to provide additional info (passport, card details etc) and that some credit card companies (Nationwide for one) block transactions to this company automatically due to suspected fraud and suggest you pay by another method or cancel the order - clearly they won't take the risk.

    Apparently onlinecarparts.co.uk and bestpartsite.co.uk are one and the same; the payments go to Autodoc GbmH and copies of the confirmation email of your order get emailed to you, onlinecarparts.co.uk and bestellung@pkwteile.de. 'bestellung' means orders I believe.

    If anyone else has more personal experience of using this company I would be pleased to hear about it.

    I had my belt replace by BMW at the 24K service, I have a decent one spare should I have any future difficulties.

    OK, I have now received a full refund (within 3 days) and having found no evidence of people losing money; just that UK customers often get similar requests for additional info from other companies in Europe, I am now confident this company is trustworthy and will place a new order using Paypal. Will report outcome.

    I did also check the Continental site which confirms the CT1158 is the correct belt for the F800S/ST

    link here http://aam-europe.contitech.de/pages...tikelID=CT1158

    Update: now ordered belt. Interesting that the site uses a countdown and discount offered to GB customers varies during the day. I had to pay £111.10 whereas last week it was £108.86. If I had waited a further 15 mins the price would have risen to £113.44. All prices incl VAT, delivery is +£8.

    2nd update: belt received within 1 week. UPS was carrier, tracking link was helpful to see progress. Can confidently recommend this company. Thanks to everyone who gave advice.

    FYI original belt did 41k miles. Will also replace rear rubber damper segments.

    Yeah great link Nick. I bookmarked it as they are typically out of stock right now. Good job its not urgent as mine is currently fine. I order a lot from Mr Auto for the car as well. Always easy to deal with and quick delivery.

    Spareto.Com €140 euros or USD$150, delivered to my door (Canada.)

    As of April 21 - see the screenshot.

    Add the CT1158 to your cart, go through the check out process including the shipping, and you'll see the price drop from what is shown on the initial page (I assume some kind of discount is applied.) I ordered one last week, arrived in 7 days (to Canada.)

    If you are curious, like me, about spare to.com (they don't have much of a web presence), you can Google their basic tax filings (EU requirement). Their tax number is EE101582197. Be prepared to use Google translate.

    7 employees, 536 920.76 EUR (for the period 12.01.2016 - 28.02.2017) gross sales.
