Recommended Timing Belt Brand?

Hi
I have just bought a 1.9 JTD Sedici, and at 67k and no service history, I think it's safe to say I should get the timing belt/pump replaced.
I've had a look through the related forums, but can't see any mention of the best 'brand' of timing kit. Is there a favoured manufacturer out there? Something more robust than the cheap parts that my garage will inevitably source?
Thanks!

OUCH ,
it's generally inactivity that kills the idler bearings, once they run hot / seize they then take out the belt

DDIS..?? Suzuki..??

I replaced my original belt with a Continental Timing Belt, a German Brand, it's great

Gates is a good brand. Not to bad a job if you want to tattle it yourself. No special tools needed. Might as well do new anti freeze being it's got to be drained.

Gates also do a racing belt that is many times stronger than a standard belt.

My water pump went at about 50K, didn't take the belt out with it though. I am surprised a water pump only lasts 50K, the one in my Toyota is still going strong at 165K. So yeah, you may as well get the timing belt and pump all done at the same time.
