    opinion on the alternator belts

    HI Guys,
    will be doing some work and while the fan will be out and ill be under the car I will be also changing the belts. Now I could find few different ones and would like your opinion on quality vs. price

    first good year, do they know how to make their rubber?
    MERCEDES C-CLASS T-Model S204 C220 CDI ALTERNATOR AUXILIARY POLY V BELT 6PK2155 | eBay

    this one claims to be original part and made in a way that it should last longer, should it really?
    BMW Genuine Water Pump/Alternator Drive Ribbed V-Belt 11287789985 | eBay

    and this one says nothing but its a belt, right?
    6PK2083 Alternator Fan Belt, Bmw 530 E60 07>on 3.0 Diesel Opt1/2 | eBay

    now I do not mind to spend 40 quid on the belt but only if the claim that they will last longer is true and not just a marketing lye!
    or if you know about any other make which is good.

    thank you
