I have just refurbished a Dyson that only needed the motor brushes replacing. I bought it off eBay for 99p
The main head was a bit scuffed, so it was replaced.
Grand total of rebuild was £17

Just purchased my second on of these, the telescopic arm broke on the first and at 50 quid for a new one the wife purchased a VAX, I held back and let her make the mistake.

Pile of garbage, so back to a new Miele, I now have the old one minus the arm for the car.

cracking pieces of kit for the money.

I have seen some of the pro write ups on here with less pictures and details than this! Epic, yet mental
