    engine replacement

    Hi folks,

    after problems with the inlet manifold (now replaced), my mechanic told me that the oil floating about in the engine will eventually cause it to die, and apparently the only way to fix this is to get a replacement engine. So here my questions

    I have a Golf MK6 from late 2009, it is the twin charged comfortline with a manual gearbox, can I get a reconditioned engine for this (Brisbane area) and what would I expect to pay (a) for the engine and (b) to get it installed?

    Thanks for your advice.

    Okay, looks like no-one is replacing engines anymore these days. Hoped V-Dub wasn't a throw away item, alas it will have to go.

    Does anyone know a decent VW mechanic in the Brisbane, Gold- or Sunshine Coast region?

    Didn't want to park a Toyota Corolla under my Christmas tree this year..
