Some information about why you feel they have ripped you off would be a good idea... otherwise it might be interpreted as a troll post.

Re: After An Engine? Read This!!!

I paid £925 for the engine excluding fitting, it was sold as, complete and in working order! (Yh right). Recieved it 0n 30/04/08 to find it had been jacked up by the sump and had a big hole in it, oil pump snapped and timming issuse's. Raised it with them and all they do is fob me off.

They told me they would send me out a replacement engine, that never happened. 4wks later after numerous calls promised to reimburse me for the faults. 2mths later still no refund after about 20 phone calls "yh yh we'll get that sorted for u"

Wrote a letter stating my intentions that if the matter isn't resolved, I would be taking them to court.
Only for the letter to be sent back to me, because the company do not reside at that address.
If the company was near me, they'd get what 4.

But on the plus side if you can call it that, Just got her back today and she's puring like a cat after another £800+ for parts and labour

Re: After An Engine? Read This!!!

I'm pretty sure this company has been mentioned on this forum before, I believe that trading standards and watchdog are aware of this company too (from memory anyway) ...

... did you pay with a credit card? if so you'll be able to get your money back from the credit card company ..

Re: After An Engine? Read This!!!

robbin bugg£rs i never spend that sort of money unless i go in person and collect myself or, if i new them and i trust them.

i hate people like that i was conned couple of years ago in a petrol station by some bloke for £280. "a fool and his money are easily parted!"

anyway i am afraid i would have not waited as long as you did i would have took the day off work drove over there unnanounced and ripped into them. if no joy beat crap out of em apparently i need anger managment but i think you would be well justified! however, you probally did the right thing.

good luck with trading standards and i hope you get your money back!

Re: After An Engine? Read This!!!

i no what you mean mate i heard something on the radio last week that they reckon in a years time it could be as high as £2.30 a litre of petrol! how the hell can they justify that with bp and shell making a billion squllion pounds extra on last year. atleast you got a diesel so you get more mpg than my gta! i also have had to invest in a 1.9jtd punto street cred!
