We use a phone based "findapart" and had great success.Only thing is it is 1.00 a minute so you have to make sure you get all of your details prior to phoning.Ben had an early Honda Jazz,we originally bought with a con rod through the side of the engine,and I thought,as it was 1200 cc the engine would be the same as aCivic of the same year.How wrong I was,these engines were as rare as Hen's teeth,found an engine on findapart though.I'll post the phone number on here tommorrow.

Surely that's just an excuse for an engine upgrade??? Twisted Evil

Would've been nice,but at the age he was then,the word Japanese was enough to send the insurance soaring.

Surprised at that would have thought the Jazz was in a low ins group (well except the R version)? Gubmint needs to sort out the price of insurance for young drivers. The 18 year old apprentice Iain works with pays more per month for a 1.2 10 year old Corsa then either of us pay a year for any of our cars. And in the case of the Scamp more per week then my annual policy costs!!!! Seems very unfair they are bearing the brunt of rising costs when much of the cause is nothing to do with them, but that's a rant for another day.
