    I will look them up but ideally I would like a UK based company just incase there are any issues etc.

    Very reputable company, genuine parts etc and delivery in 2 days. One thing for sure though is I would not go to a dealer unless you like picking up soap.

    CR have got a bit of a bad reputation on here with their hybrids for quality and consistency... if they are using genuine parts then it stands a chance as one of the biggest issues with the chinese hotsides favoured by some is they are quite frankly crap... boost creep issues and dodgy wastegates to name a couple of problems with them

    Have you tried beach buggy turbos?

    Update - I got a brand new unit from BW via TurboTechnics (the guy I was dealing with is called Brian, nice bloke), very reasonably priced at 660 inc. vat & free delivery. Could have really done without this being close to crimbo etc but needs must *sigh*

    £660 inc vat is a very good price! Is it 100% genuine?
