    Just been given the final quote for an engine which has done 60K miles...

    £1800.00 fitted into my car.

    Can anybody inform whether this a reasonable quote?

    Many thanks

    Crikey! Keep us updated with any quotes you get as my mate with an E46 320D has had the same injector fault destroying a piston too! If its going to cost over 1000 hes going to break the car and sell as parts, if its looking at well over a grand id better start claiming any bits i want off it

    will do, just got another quote at £1,100 for an engine which has done 55,000 miles & comes with 18month warranty. My mechanic says it's around 8 hours to take out the old engine and put in a new one so I'm looking at around £400 in labour.

    Considering I'm looking to keep this car for the few years I think I'm going to buy this engine. May also consider selling it once new engine is fitted if I can get any decent offers as it's had a lot of work done to it & is SE model.

    will keep you posted.

    TBH, that sounds like the sort of money that these engines are going for. 55k with a decent warranty sounds like a good buy to me.

    Too right, at 55k should last me at least 10 years (as long as the chassis holds out that long!)

    FYI the guys who quoted me are called Used Engines & Gear Boxes, link below.

    I can't get the link to work... But a guarantee like that is not to be sniffed at - provided that the engine has some documentation to back up the mileage and it's (the warranty that is) is in writing...

    Urgent Update

    After a month of dicking around with the above mentioned company I have finally managed to get my money refunded as they never shipped out my engine. After I had tried to contact them for about three weeks to no avail (email, mobile & landline) they finally sent me an email yesterday explaining the engine I had ordered from them had somehow managed to become damaged in their warehouse and therefore the sale was off. Bear in mind that they should have shipped out my engine three weeks before they sent me this email. The had also taken my money one month prior to the email which I received so to cut a very long and painful story short...

    *AVOID USED ENGINES AND GEARBOXES.CO.UK*

    Unless of course you are only looking to loan somebody a grand for over a month.

    Pass the message on to anybody looking to buy a used engine as I'd hate for somebody else to be put out financially as I have... lets not forget that I have not had the use of a car for a month now also.

    Rant over.
