Lucky it had enough to put the original back on. Funny, that one fits just fine. Big pain in the ass. Not liking AA right now.
This happened with me too. The problem is that the Double Walled Belt is only for Production cars made in/after September/October of 2008.
I got my car in February of this year (O8 Model)so I logically assumed the car was issued late 08. I was wrong. My car was sent from Germany in March but wasn't even sold in the US until September/October.
Omar was great and Fed-Exed the replacement/correct belt the next day.
Once you get it on, you won't be let down. Awesome product!
