    Iím not sure on the labour or cost of the bearing change - crasher would know better - because I only get to see them when somethings gone wrong and that normally means the rods out of the block. Most people I know are reluctant to even service their cars let alone anything further!

    You can pick a good second hand engine up or a better but older bkc version for around £250. Then a day and a half to fit it with oil and coolant ( t/belt or clutch and whatever else you want as itís easy at that stage) id be interested to see how that stacks up money wise to a 100k mile bearing service.

    Keep in mind too there is nothing wrong with you car at this stage and Iím increasingly seeing 08 golfs (assuming it is a golf you have) with horrible rust just under the doors. Along with leaky shocks, seized rear callipers, rusty front arches, turbo veins stuck, flywheels ratting and oil leaks galore. The money soon build up to the point itís not worth it. Again you need to balance this up too.

    So out of interest, what sort of price is it to change the engine if bought?

    It is a golf!
    There's no rust viable on sills or underneath on main body, arches ect. Shocks appeared fine, recent new brakes with calipers all around, no oil leaks. I have no idea how to check the other stuff! Also had timing belt last year! I was always told growing up, ignore millage just service it every year or 10k miles, look after the engine and it will look after you! I sold my 2017 Leon as I do like 3k miles a year tops! So it was devaluing so fast I got fed up of losing so much money

    Your car sounds like a well looked after clean Golf. Engine change cost is dependant or your mechanics labour rate which roughly would be 12 hours. Some mechanics wonít do it though as a second hand engines can give problems too like crank seals and they wonít take on the hassle. So thatís a benefit to getting the bearing change done. Hopefully crasher will give us some numbers on that.

    Im hoping it's been looked after, although it's just a 'cheap run around' to me, I wanted a mk5 about 5 years ago when I had a polo gti 2007, and it's like I'm a '20 Yr old' again getting the car I wanted! And I don't want to spend any money for the next few years if I can help it, saving for a house!

    A vw specilist I contacted who lives local ish, wouldn't give me a price but said 'it's more than the cars worth', I took that as he didn't want to do it, hense no price! And I actually expected engine change to be more than 12 hours! My local go to garage is £35 a hour +vat

    £35 + VAT an hour! FFS, I hope he has low overheads and cheap living! Changing the bearings takes about three hours. We use aftermarket bearings by KS, Mahle or Glyco, the price of genuine VAG bearings is silly but we do use genuine bolts and sump sealant. When dropping the oil, if you suspect the sump thread is a bit ropey, get a new sump… aftermarket from Febi are cheap and perfect.

    Brilliant thank you! I know the sort of amount I should expect to pay now, as Labour isn't to long!
    Im still trying to find someone to do it, all my local garages have either said its gotta go engine referb company, or have said it will cost more than cars worth, and I've said I'd still like a price they won't give me one, implying then don't want to do it/don't know how!

    I think that confirms itís better to do the bearing change rather than roll the dice on the engine holding out.

    I am surprised at the attitude of the garages you have approached, it is a job I could quite literally do blindfolded if I had to, mind that would make putting the sump goo on a pretty messy job!

    Iím not surprised at anything garages come out with 😂 Most think they know everything and know very little. The most common one is the garages who havenít a clue about doing a torsion setting after a timing belt change.

    Yes, a lot of garages do give the rest of us a bad name, I feel the time to be a general garage has passed and each of us has to specialise.
