Hi guys,

I am trying to import a Rb26 engine component from the guys at Car Engines UK - The One Stop Shop For Used Engines

Since I do not live in the U.K. I was hoping to seek some advice on the forum who have experienced in dealing with them.

I asked to forward the payment via paypal or ebay but they say they only accept bank transactions to make a life easier.

Please kindly guide me on this and it would be greatly appreciated. thank you. :wavey:

I'm pretty sure they're scammers as a guy who works for me got sucked in by a company with a very similar name to this. When he comes in today I'll get the details but I would strongly suggest avoiding any company like this as they are not a specialist and you run a very strong risk of not getting what you paid for. Leave it with me for now.

OK, they are not the same company as the one that scammed my colleague but, looking on their Facebook page, are just a car breakers yard in Bolton. Try and find the parts from one of the traders on here rather than this company, it'll only end in tears otherwise.

as above, serious, never buy an engine or gearbox from a company that sells engines and gearboxes. Speak to ANY of out tuners, especially DaveW as the has a 33 coming for breaking, but all of them have engines spare.

Or, if you are in Korea still, maybe check Skylines down under as well and the shipping may be cheaper.

Thank you so much for your guidance guys. As you said, I will stick to the rule of thumbs. Never trust anyone who reject safe transactions, especially when the world is under depression :) Thumbs Up!
