Thanks both.

Whilst I am still likely to do it myself, I have since spotted this:

Which seems cheap to supply and fit. Is this a case of too good to be true? Has anyone got any experience with these guys?

It would mean that the mini would be back on the road by the end of the month, rather than the 3-4 months it is likely to take me to get everything else I need to do first and then actually do the mini.

It does look cheap but the prices are all over the place on ebay for remanufactured engines.

Early this year I purchased what was supposed to be a fully forged engine for ~£7K from a company claiming to be No 1 international BMW/MINI engine & parts supplier and that turn out pants and since then have gone out of business.

Not sure if you've checked out the company you've linked to

I would say if you don't have a choice of waiting then that is a good price for supply and fit (can be a lot of hassle chasing any problems afterwards), but if you do have time and can DIY then that's no brainer.
