    Dodgey engine & gearbox company

    Hi guys, im just posting a warning about a company i have had problems with, the company is called "ideal engines & gearboxes" who also work with "Mr Engines". I payed them £414 for a second hand 1.4 vw lupo gearbox 3 weeks ago and it still hasnt arrived. ive rang them around 20 times and they use the same excuse of " its with the courier" so you ask them for the couriers name and number and they wont give it you :@ After the first few times of ringing them i looked on reviews of the company ( i should of looked first i know ) and here are some people have gave :

    Transmission Reconditioner in Barking (UK) - Ideal Engines & Gearboxes
    Mr Engine - www.mrengine.net Reviews | Online Car Part Suppliers | Review Centre

    hope you all avoid getting ripped of by this company and others like it. thanks

    If you paid by credit card ring the card company and cancel the transaction
