Can I say first that I'm really greateful for the help you guys have gave me. I've decided to post here first as I would prefer to sell to an enthusiast who may be able to get it going again.
I can't source "just a head" - maybe you'll have more luck - or an engine crane.
So, a W reg A3 1.8T Quattro, 133k on the clock, was an amazingly good runner until oil issue. Needs new head and turbo (well, not sure if it does need new turbo, but seeing as you have to take head off to get at it).
There's no need to mention FSH, lady owner etc etc
There is cosmetic damage to rear near side door and wing due to parking accident. Can easily be fixed by DIY sprayer and some 38.
Head has been re-assembled with all bolts and pipes put back in their place, not torqued up. Sump bolts bagged up (bar three holding it on).
Car is in Tyldesley, Greater Manchester (15 miles north-west of Manchester) - M29 7**
