    The guy had the car for a year?

    Has the guy now dissapeared or is he going to be able to get his money back? That is pretty shocking!

    £9k isnt pocket money, and to hand that sort of money a year ago expecting work on your car, for it to come back to you looking like that must have been heart wrenching. I would be absolutely fuming.

    9 grand seems alot for an engine rebuild, i'm sure my mates dad charges far less that that and he is an RX7 specialist.
    He must be gutted though to have spent that and have an un useable car.
