So should I just do the standard replacement kit that FCP has or with the water pump. What would be the benefit? My car has around 150,000 miles on it. Never replaced the water pump before. Also, is there a reason IPD's kit is so much more? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Not sure why IPD's price is higher, could be that they don't use Chinese?<p>In any case, it's easier to replace the WP while everything's exposed during the belt change. The pump isn't going to last forever and is good insurance towards a potential meltdown later.

Most definitely do the water pump and the idler pulley too.

Thank you so much! I am grateful for your responses! I will just go with the FCP set. Thank you! Wish me luck! Any suggestions on the replacements...
