Default Any one from uk? some questions.

Can anyone tell me more regarding car modification rules around here?

Can the engine be transplanted to any size/type? or is it cc/vehicle/brand specific?

Gearbox swaps? legal? how about auto>manual?

lets say if it's ok, what are the typical labour charges for
1)whole car paintjob.
2)interior refurbishment
3)engine work/transplant(pounds per manhour)
4)average cost for an alignment?

Default Any things legal if done safely. It may need approval afterwards.

No idea on costs i'm afraid.

Default that's a relief.

Well, cost is always a problem isnt it?

btw, from your post below, you work in central london? which part?

I stay in camberwell, and study at the strand. Plan to buy my first car here, still quite clueless on the details.

You can do what ever you want providing it passes an MOT.

Your insurance will go through the roof and may require an Engineersa report on the work done.
