    I renovated mine with the Bosch kit (similar to this one) - do all four at once. Many videos on youtube etc. But you need to know what you are doing with timing belt, or learn it (and change it while you are there unless it's newish). I cleaned my old injectors with an ultrasound cleaner (normally used for cleaning spectacles) before installing the new gaskets/kits etc. It's done about 50 k-km so far and runs very nicely - fuel and emissions are lower. Very satisfying. A pack of 4 cost me about 40€

    Hi Crasher,
    I didn't mean it so literally - just that I had problems with my injectors and was quoted silly money to fix/replace them with reconditioned ones (prohibitively expensive) but was able to get around that by learning a lot and spending about 1/4 of the price on tools and parts. And I now know how to fix more things which is very nice - especially the timing belt as that is a regular expense. It took a fair effort but well worth it, and reuses instead of just replacing - in my case the whole vehicle.
