My beloved W8 expired and my dealership gave me bad tidings that the repair/diagnosis would be beyond economical repair . Also a £1000 bill for investigative work carried out.!! You can imagine my reaction (just before Christmas), not really because of the financial cost, but saying goodbye to my car after nearly 14 years of ownership.
I have comprehensive extended warranty, but it seemed doubtful if they would 'cough up' as the cost would be prohibitive.
Yesterday, I received a phone call to say ' All systems GO!!!' A new engine at a cost of.......£12,000. ! Plus V.A.T ,labour and cost of initial work. What a New Years present.
I believe the engine has to be specially built, and all parts are available. Nothing obsolete ( I hope!)
I will report on progress as and when.
I will post some photos (hopefully) . Well, at least I will have to wait for my son to do so as I am an old codger slowly entering the 21st century!
