Wow, where do I sign up to sell stuff in Bucksnort?  
I bought the timing belt for my V8Q for $40.00, original Continental from
Mark at Adirondack.  I installed myself, not rocket science, but not as
easy as an I5.  Requires the manual and a few special tools, not exactly
unique in the world of high end German machinery.  Comparing the V8Q to
the 5KS,  I probably spend 1 hour of my time on maintenance/repair on the
V8Q for every 10 I spend on the 5KS.
