Ripped off by Motor Spares UK – Never buy from them!!!

So 3 weeks ago my head gasket goes on my ZR 160. Turns out I also have piston melt damage. My car go dragged to MG rover / Ames Nissan. They took my engine apart and said to fix it, it would prob cost the same as buying a new engine and to be fair I’d rather have a new engine then a fixed up wrecked on. For a band new ZR 160 engine would cost £1995 which to be fair I don’t think is work it.

I searched the net and various people phoned me the next day with prices… the cheapest was Motor Spares UK with a ZR 160 VVC, 49K ,2003 for £550 + £50 delivery + Vat = £705
Six working days later it arrived, GREAT!!!! It turns out, its an MG TF engine and to make matters worse the head gasket had gone on that too!!!

I checked with Barclaycard to where the money went, Motor Spares UK. I check with MG rover : Motor Spares UK- just to make sure im not being a Muppet.

So I called Motor Spares UK and was told that I had the wrong company…. End of convocation.

So now im stuck….. im waiting from Barclaycard for a claims form but as the cards not lost or stolen I don’t see me getting my £705 back. Any advice guys??

Ohh btw im getting an engine from a more reputable firm for £800 so ive paid double!! Thanks Motor Spares UK!!!
