    Default Good Garages??

    Hello all, After taking my vectra through the ford at rufford park and flooding the engine with water I am now looking for a new engine. To much damage caused for fixes. Anyone know of any really reliable decent garages that carry out quality work in fitting engines? around the Mansfield and surrounding area. Also where to get a good recon engine? Ive spoke to Megavaux in nottingham they have quoted £1100.00 for fully fitted 'used' engine with 6 months guarantee. Any advice would be apreciated as its going to be a expensive job and want the job to be done right. Cheers.

    Perhaps not for fitting your engine but the best vx garage by a mile is Marehay at Ripley for your services
