Exactly! In this e bay age, its great to go and lookat/touch what you are buying, and some rogue traders can take advantage of distance. I too had a recent issue with a well known supplier, who swore blind a different coloured bonnet and wing had come off the same vehicle and were the same colour. Rude and aggressive when I disagreed. Idiot. Details on request PM me. He does advertise on here.

Of course I could be completely wrong.

As for the breakers it does seem they are being unreasonable.

Are you fitting the gearbox to a 75 or trying to fit it an MGF?
All Jatco auto boxes have different codes.
They may fit but have slightly different ratios.
Anyway, i mentioned many times BEFORE PAY that i need the PRO10 1.8 16v and NOT the PR014 1.8T.
The one is very rare and expensive the other is easier to find so cheaper.

If it was good i would have keep it. It was wrong AND NOISY.

The autobox was for a friends R75.

Interesting as Parts Gateway list them as RB Ltd and they have returned the best quote for me in comparison to the other suppliers and are the only ones with the right colour in stock. I WAS going to order from them via Parts Gateway, but am a bit hesitant now. It's too far for me to go pick it up

Well I have bought an engine from Rover Breakers Ltd in Hull , and every thing was fine, also very helpful.
I have sent a few of my friends to them, all of them was very happy with service.
Not every one is perfect so maybe some of you guys have problem but I've never had any problems.

My brother picked us up a trailing arm for the ZT a few years back and said they were a shoddy outfit and hadnt got much clue - I spoke to an indian sounding fella on the phone when I ordered

What I got was good and cheap , my only complaint was that they chopped the lead off the ABS sensor

My old boy had an engine fitted there. The only reason I didn't do it was the logistics of it, so, it was a cdti lump, come back to me with a diesel leak (broke the fuel filter housing) loose connectors, broken brackets, loose hoses, clogged breather filter, old oil!!!

It took me a day and a half to rectify all the faults THEY caused doing the swap!!

I know it wasn't like that before hand, as I had covered 20k in the car and sold it on to my old man!!

And just for the record, accepting cash does not make one a tax dodger ........


Not declaring it does lol

Kostas if you need any bits I recomend a company by me who sponsor the Merseyside Meets, its Chester MG-ROVER Specialists, they are on facebook at the moment and they offer a fantastic service, don't see why they won't post to you.

I'm not sure what nationality has to do with it..

There are bad companies everywhere run by people from all over the world

When I bought my TF160 engine the seller promised me it was complete on the subframe and the engine code was deffo 160 with 47k on the clock

I paid the 600 plus delivery (nervously)

It arrived and was indeed as described. But I still felt 'lucky' if that makes sense

Loads of rip off breakers about. Cheers for the heads up

Sharing bad experiences on here is a good idea

I agree with diesel destroyer, it has nothing to do with nationality. It's simply receiving the items you pay for in working order! Surely if they are a registered business, then trading standards can be made aware of this? Kostas, did you pay for your stuff via Paypal? From my experience as an eBay trader, they more often then not, side with the buyer over the seller, so open a case? Do they not offer a guarantee? Most reputable breakers offer at least 60 days nowadays and should also cover the return postage if the part is faulty!!

I would take it further and then find a more reputable company to deal with in the future.
