    Yes it's worth mentioning. Wouldn't expect to get top whack for a car that's a non-runner though. You'd probably get more by breaking it

    I'm really not the best person to ask. It's worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it. Personally I would be weary of buying a car which had a blown engine, because you're never sure why it got to be like that in the first place.

    On the other hand there are plenty of 2.0tdi S-line avants with just over 100k going for about £6k on autotrader. So if you take off £2k for the engine maybe £4k isn't too far off. But if you're going to put a new engine in it why not keep it as you know everything else is good on the car? People would probably be reluctant to buyt the car with no engine as you can't even road test it for common problems...

    If its any help to you a couple of weeks ago I found myself in the same situation as you are now, my main bearings went in the bottom end and was umm and argh Inge about what to do. I was going to use the company in the previous link to put a new engine in but decided against it. I wasn't comfortable sending my car to somewhere I didn't know to put an engine I hadn't seen into it and heard a few bad reviews about the company. I managed to source a second hand BRD with 69k on the clock that's been removed from a crashed car and fully checked over for usual faults (ie hex shaft wear) delivered to my Indy where my car was for £900 and got my Indy to fit it. The mrs has just picked up the car up today and paid the Indy £1200ish for fitting and replacing some parts off the old engine. So all in its come to £2100 for an engine fitting and a few new parts. Hope this helps.

    The labour to fit was 500 the rest was diagnostic checks and identifying the problem before we found out the problem, and new parts added to the new engine when fitting I haven't got the receipt to actually get the break down as I'm away with work but ill look over it tomorrow when I get back and explain the rest, plus it had the courtesy car we needed to pay for included in the bill for 3 1/2 weeks
