I don't believe LR have made the major components available for 3rd party rebuilders apart from the one official one.

Take that how you wish to read it, but I wouldn't get one, unless it had a cast iron insurance backed guarantee

Yes I know - but nearly all of the remanufactures seem to have issues. Worth checking their companies house records too. The directors and where they have previously worked - often tells an interesting story!

If you go on the beta site you can get the accounts. The one company is worth nothing. And the other one is on the face of it loosing money.
