    Hi, do any of you have any experiences or recommendations between NWS and Turner for the supply of a reconditioned 300 tdi engine for my 90? NWS are about £750 cheaper at about £3100 delivered. Are Turner's worth the extra at £3850? Thanks in advance

    Turners are a long established company. I have had a good experience with them. It's worth a search on here to see what has happened with other people using both companies.

    All I can say is, a Turner engine will be as good as, if not better than a new one. £750 is a lot of money though.

    I agree,but I’ve had a Turner and it was excellent. But why not give them a ring and try blag a discount.

    i rebuilt my engine myself, but turners were my choice for all the bits and advice, i visited their workshop - they are good, its a proper 'old skool' knowledge type setup.

    You pays yer money. Cheap isnt always best imo

    I did exactly the same. They are superb. They even reply to emails on Sunday nights. You don't come across businesses like this very often IMO.

    Maybe tell them your a member here and they have nothing but good things to say about them. You never know, maybe a small discount.
