    Re: help

    It is difficult to say if you could just bolt it in. The problems would start if you had to have the car set up to run with that combination of engine and injection. If I were you I would rather go to a reconditioning centre and get the same type of motor. Or of course, get yours fixed.

    i think getting mine fixed is a bit out of the question i think it will be cheaper to get a second hand engine with less miles because mine had done 177943 when it broke so it will be better to get a newer engine

    Re: help

    or if you can get a reconditioned one, you should at least get a guarantee. If you buy second hand you don't really know what the condition of the engine is?

    Re: help

    I should add, I know that I look after my car, servicing done on time, not driving too fast, letting it warm up, etc.
    I also know that most other people I see out there could not give flying ... about their cars, you see them from a cold start in the morning leaving stripes up the road.. I certainly would not want one of those engines in my car.

    Re: help

    Does the UK have decent remanufactured engines?

    Just thought of something, don't Audi also sell recon units?
