Pumabuild do a good deal on rebuilt engines and a strengthened version. Also a little bird told me they might have some RS engines very soon!!

Dealer or privately bought? If it was a dealer car you may have a chance with the Sales of Goods Act depending on what the fault is.

How is it possible to blow a non modified engine? apart from the obvious no oil. but surley this day and age no matter how much rag you give a modern engine it should be set up to cope with alot?
Pretty much how I thought it was... I can understand liners going (ragging it from cold constantly), but didn't think the bottom end could go that way.

Maybe lack of oil and filter changes causing the filter to become blocked and leading to oil starvation maybe ?

My bottom end has gone on a 06 plate 46k car! May be able to be fixed as noise is not horrific. New bearings needed.
