    Hi,

    My 2002 A6 3.0 Auto quattro petrol appears to have died.

    Audi, here in France, want 15000 euro to rebuild the engine.

    I took it in with ticking cam follower. they tested it and all compressions are down to 7.5 bar and under the cam covers all looks a bit sicky!

    I bought it from a BMW dealer in Germany who is looking to see if anything is available under warranty....

    Any ideas where an recon / SH engine can be sourced? The car is probably only worth10K so is beyond economical repair, but the body and interior are immaculate and too good to scrap.

    Bum

    A genuine Audi dealer supplied engine (block and heads) is only 4000, where do they get 15K Euro from?
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    The engine may well be cheaper in France, PM me the cars chassis number and I will see what I can find out.

    If it runs and drives, it might be cheaper than €15k to drive it up to Crasher's place and get it done!

    'oh dear',? 'Blimey' ?-- steady on old chap. Thats a bit strong for this forum.
    I couldn't imagine any members using such strong language in the same circumstances.
    Most would be effing a jeffing and blowing a headgasket too.

    Settle down- dont make any harsh/ decisions -and work out how to get the injured motor back to Blighty .
    You in AA or RAC recovery ?.

    ps - personally I'd push it back to Uk rather than provide Euros for those frog eating , greedy 'chancers to gorge themselves on green legs and red wine .
