Something old, something new?

So my car has a reconditioned engine fitted, and having seen it I can see it’s a filthy one. I was a little disappointed as my engine was much cleaner than this thing they’ve strapped into my car.

But wait, the plot thickens. You see, I just phoned BMW in Newport to get a quote for a new lock set and an ariel, and they happened to mention how they supplied a brand new engine for my car to the Hillcroft garage.

Now hang on, did I just say ‘brand new’ engine? I did, oh yes. Something is most assuredly wrong here. You don’t think that maybe the Hillcroft acquired a new engine from BMW, paid for by their insurance company, only to fit a reconditioned engine and keep the new one to sell on at a profit do you?

Surely not… let’s see if BMW can identify the engine in my car as the one they supplied. I hope for the Hillcroft’s sake they can.
