    Unhappy In need of some serious help...

    Our Astra J VXR needs a new engine and Turbo and no matter how high or low we look we cannot find one anywhere. Does anyone know where we could go to find one?

    Thanks in advance.

    Engine and turbo! As in both? What happened? Can it not be rebuilt/put right, think you will struggle to find one secondhand tbh! Sorry to be no help but I'll keep an ear out

    There was a part that exploded near the engine and its wrecked everything, absolutely gutted, garage quote between £8000 - £9000 for repair and nobody else will help (finance, Insurance, Garage, etc) Vauxhall wont pay out for the broken parts so we are left with this hefty bill and would rather buy secondhand(where possible) and get a homer done. thanks anyway!

    The car is now 5 years old with less than 50000 we bought the car just over a year ago from a local car sales and it only had about a 30 day warranty as that was standard given by garage.

    2016 astra j vxr engine at Intaparts, Daventry. Not cheap but only 4154 miles and 100% legit company. I have bought quite a lot of parts from the same car.

    Tell you what, I thought that was actually very reasonable for an engine with just over 4K miles
