    I love the way they say its a direct replacement for an Audi A4 when its clearly a pic of a transverse K03

    I would give CR Turbos (other turbo suppliers are available) as a refurb on your existing turbo is not much more expensive and they typically refurb to K03s spec if asked...

    They will fail! They're not balanced and likely to blow up in a few 1000 miles. If you need a good Refurbed one I may have onenext week for not much more than that one. I can let you know. But honestly don't buy a cheap chinese one.
