Hello I have a Bosch independent near me but I can't navigate the website you sent for the engine.
Expert:  Gavin Perry replied 6 days ago.

Morning Ivor searle as i said will not deal with the public / private customer you will have to get the Bosch approved to contact them and then they can get the costings then they can work out the quote it is not the cheapest way to go about it but the only way if you want a good end result. If you go for a used engine and any old garage it is like a never ending story it just goes on and on. Keep me posted with how you get on.
