So a great start to the new year... I've nearly gone blind and had to have retinal detachment surgery and now my turbo has gone on my car.
A family member took it into audi for me and asked them to give it a once over and to do the following:
They've got back to me and said that the turbo needs replacing (fair enough) and the battery because thats causing the poor starting. But the resonance in the back of the car is down to the turbo (I call bull****).
- New turbo
- the starting is lethargic in the morning when its cold, advise
- diagnose the resonance in the back of the car between 60-80 (most likely down to the propshaft donut?)
Oh and they want £1650 for a new turbo and new battery (not sure if this is including vat, need to double check).
My question to you guys is, would it be more economical to get the turbo refurbed or to get the turbo from elsewhere, if so any suggestions?
It's probably worth mentioning thats its been remapped and I don't want a cheap **** turbo!
