You have two excellent sources for Bentley parts in the UK:
Scuderia Systems: https://www.scuderiacarparts.com/ (note: While they show USA, they are actually in the UK)
Flying Spares. https://www.flyingspares.com/?gclid=...xoCt2gQAvD_BwE

Yea I have seen skudaria but think they are very overpriced I find it hard to fathom as to why the parts for a 2004 model are so expensive yet the 2017-18 are cheaper .130 for a rubber belt seems rediculous I've got a supplier trying to source one atm as he says there are only a few places that actually make all the belts and he has access to them.im happy to pay a fair price but some prices are silly just because of the stamp they carry.thanks for your reply though

Brace yourself. As we say on this side of the pond: "you ain't seen nothing yet!!" Bentley ownership is not for the faint of wallet.

Agreed, some parts are more money if Bentley specific. Many parts eg.Volkswagon, Audi, Skoda or VAG, work on Bentleys. Homework required to cross reference.

The BGT serpentine belt is a unique piece. Ribbed on both sides, unlike conventional belts ribbed on one side.

In the US price is between 150 - 250 dollars.
