      Thanks. The grey on grey definitely works, though they're surprisingly different greys. The Fox is blue greys while the GTI seats are brownish greys.

      Sure timing belts last that long, doesn't mean the timing belt is on the engine all the time. I've had mine off more than once in the past couple years.

      Alain bought them for me last time he was in Brazil and I have 100% confidence that they're the right thing. For one thing Alain bought them, he has also shipped these seals to lots of people, and...

      Jim I'm guessing you've never swapped the timing belt on a Fox with the engine in place then. Getting the pulley off the crankshaft so you can get the lower cover off is the biggest pain in the butt...
