    What are those marks in the compressor intake?
    Chris

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    If it's just the turbo then it'll only be about £600 for an exchange unit fitted (by VAG specialist). It'll only be 000's if you go main dealer.

    Its on it's way to one now they reckon there is some sort of breather that should be replaced at the same time so am getting that done as well,
    they have found a new turbo fir £400 ish and then labor and this breather
    part also.

    As for the marks on the intake, thats where the impeller was wobbling around and banging off the sides!

    Sorry to hear about that, it's a right downer when something like that happens.

    Did you have any symptoms of the turbo going or did it just die suddenly? If the turbo is on its way out, it usually sounds like a drill and there will be huge plumes of white smoke out the exhaust.

    When the turbo actually died and you stopped the car were there clouds of smoke coming out the back? Was the turbine and the blades completely broken?

    Interesting, I've never heard of a turbo going out so quickly. It usually develops over a number of days or weeks. Guess you just got unlucky.
