    My engine blew & I need to replace it. I've only had the car 8 months now and I'm feeling a bit miffed!

    Can anybody give me some direction as to where I could find a used engine retailer?

    Many Thanks

    Nope, faulty injector apparently.

    My mechanic said it'd probably be cheeper to source a replacement engine as opposed to individual parts, ouch.

    Many thanks for the link, I'll give them a phone call tomorrow and see what the damage will be. Hopefully under £1000!

    How did you guess? Lol, yep I had a melted piston & also the engine managed to dismount itself. Sounded as if somebody had chucked a bowling ball in a washing machine & put it on spin cycle.

    As already stated Quarry motors and you could also sign up to a on line parts search then that's every breaker in the county that's registered informed of what your after and they get in touch with you.Saves a lot of ringing/emailing around

    I will tell you who not to go to - Mycarengine.com - the guy sent the wrong engine (Rover M47R)and then lied through his teeth for close on 8 weeks regarding a replacement and when I asked for a refund I finally got it after 2 bounced cheques and 3 additional weeks of constant telephone calls. He still hasnt aranged for the M47R engine to be collected!!!!

    Finally got an engine from a breakers in NI, excellent service and very cheap delivery £60 to Scottish Highlands delivered within 2 days.

    If you want to try him his number is 07828314961 ask for Sarge Khan

    Cheers for the heads up with regards to Quarry Motors & I'll be sure to steer clear of MYCARENGINE!

    The mechanic came over last night and said his final quote for replacement engine & fitting would be around about £1900. I'm sure I can find it cheaper else wear.

    Will keep you all posted, need to keep the 3series alive!
