PARIS, July 27 (Reuters) - French car parts maker Valeo said first-half net income surged 30 percent to 218 million euros ($316.7 million) as cost cuts paired with higher sales outweighed a rise in raw material costs. Sales in the first six months of the year rose 13 percent to 5.33 billion euros, bolstered by original equipment demand, Valeo said in a statement on Wednesday.
