    Vxr gearbox broken

    Hiya folks.

    Well my 4yr old vxrs 4th gear has decided to pack in after only 36k miles. I'm a bit pissed off to say the least.

    Anyone know the best/cheapest place to have this fixed?

    I've been quoted £850 to have the box rebuilt.

    Under warranty or is it modded?
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    4 years would be out of warranty i'd guess. Should be able to get another one for less than £850. Depends if you want to risk 2nd hand or not.

    It's out of warranty and it's quite highly modded.

    I'd rather it was fixed with new parts as a 2nd hand box could have the same problems

    I've also been told to ask for a fella called Gareth, I can't remember his last name.
