Hi

Anyone know where I can get a pair of these in the U.K ? I am retrofitting them to my B5.

BTW do we do any group buys here ?

Crank pulley I bought from www.autospeedperformance.com
They sell them for Audi V6 2.8 (100% same like ours). This crank pulley is NOT underdriven so you do not have to change your belt(not timing belt, accessory one).
P/S pulley and Alternator pulley I bought from www.unortodoxracing.com (they have also crank pulley but IT IS underdriven).

Timing belt is not in any connection with them. It is good to do it at same time because you can spare money for desembling front part of the car.
Best value for money is crank pulley( bigest gain, almost like chip and mine chip is +18 HP).P/S pulley have downside that is louder (you do not hear it in saloon, of course) than OE during use of AirCon.
If you opt for all of them, please be sure to know what type of Alternator you have (Valeo or Bosch), pulleys are diff for those 2 Alternators.

My experience up to now (more than half year) is nothing but good.
