    Which kit should I go with??

    So I finally have some PTO for the next 5 days and I plan on getting as much done as possible for my ZHP. I planned on completing my cooling system overhaul and I figured it might be a good time to also take a good look and possible replacement of the tensioners and pulleys while im there. There are some kits that I saw from both Turner Motor https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-5...53-m54-092002/ and one from FCP https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw...kt#description . They both looked good but I'm wondering if one stands out from the other and which would be best if that makes sense. I don't have a preference with companies, I've bought from FCP before and love the life time warranty but it isn't a deal breaker for me when buying parts. I have never done business with turner but have heard great things from them as well. any ideas?

    I'd go with the kit from FCP, their customer service is unrivaled and I'd still say the lifetime warranty is well worth it. Also, Turner has been taken over by ECS Tuning, which I personally haven't had any issues with, but there's a reason why this fb group exists:

    Lifetime warranty says it all. I have had zero issues ordering from FCP Euro

    ok well looks like be ordering my kit from FCP after work (as I write this post at work lol). lastly is there anything from the kit that is missing or that you guys feel I should grab with it? I am not a seasoned DIYer but the zhp was bought to be worked on and learned on. I believe the kit covers all the accessory drive belts but I wanna make sure there's nothing I'm missing while I'm there doing the cooling system.

    I would reuse the bolts instead of the new ones from the kit. The bolts I got when I ordered snapped in half when I was torquing them.
