LUK for clutchs and Flywheels. Valeo and Sachs are good too.

Sachs make good springs as well as KYB.

FAI for general suspension parts are good.

Brembo or ferodo for brake pads/discs. EBC if your going for a more performance setup.

Comma is a really good standard oil with Royal Purple being a premium option. Can't go wrong with the genuine dexos stuff either.

Mann for filters

Gates or INA for timing belt kits.

FAG or SNR for wheel bearings

Sure there's plenty others I've missed

i always use gates timing stuff and always
mintex brake stuff
used loads of jinyu and nexxen tyres over the years. can’t seem to get them round here now, currently on pirelli pzero but not for much longer.
always use dealer filters sensors and water pumps as I don’t trust other junk for the sake of a few quid.
