    Turbo Problems??

    Hi All!

    What a bad couple of days!
    First I noticed a nasty whining noise coming from the power steering and found a leak near the rack, luckily the warranty have agreed to pay. Still annoying though.

    I then noticed what I can only describe as an increase in turbo lag, just doesn't seem to pull as well as it should do, any ideas or should i get audi to look into it when they are doing the steering?
    Could the turbo be knackered, the car has done 132000 miles now, just cant stop driving it lol.
    Cheers

    Yeah I got it through the dealer I bought it from 8 months ago, It's with a company called 'Motorplan'. Was really pleased with it.

    Yer i bought my S3 from an Independant dealer 8 months ago and got a 3 yr warranty for 650.
    I can claim 12 times a year with a limit of 1000 per claim.
    It covers everything apart from consumables, interior and bodywork.
    Excess is 25 per claim

    The only condition is that i change the oil every 6000 miles

    Very handy

    So for example if I needed a new clutch and flywheel that will more than 1000 from an audi dealer with fitting it, that won't be covered? Can you get the work done anywhere else or does it have to be at the Audi Dealer?

    Who do I need to speak to about this?

    my warranties with olympic. I can get work done through them at a non audi garage using oem parts.
    If anythings over 1000 i pay the difference but most things wont be more. Mt local garage said even a new turbo he can get for 300.

    but there is another warranty place called warranty direct which will cost around 300/450 yearly. The cover is 5000 for the whole year which some people may prefer. you can pay about 20% more premium if you prefer the work to be done at audi.
    most warranties are avaible for cars up to 10 years and under 100k unless you get the warranty when buying the car.

    also you can get aa parts and labour warranty for breakdown cover which is 65 per year. You have unlimited claims for up to 500 each time.
