Can I get a month's insurance and tax reimbursed while my Hyundai i10 waits for a spare part?

My 10-month-old Hyundai i10 has been in the local dealer's workshop for a month, waiting for a head gasket to be sent from India. I have made a verbal complaint to the head office and the workshop staff are trying their best to get the part. Where do I stand legally, and what compensation could I ask for, including reimbursement for a month's insurance and tax?

Have they supplied another car while yours was unavailable? I hope so. There is also a potential claim for loss of use for this vehicle. Not much, but around £10 a day.
