    Problems finding a replacement turbo - anyone help??

    The turbo on my '00 Avant 115bhp PD is knackered; according to Turbo Technics it's leaking oil to the exhaust side.
    Apparently these turbos (p/n 028 245 702R) can't be reconditioned so I have to buy new. Turbo Technics have them on order from Garrett but their delivery is a week overdue; they may be in today but I'm not holding my breath.
    I could buy direct from Audi but they're almost 200 more than from Turbo Technics.
    Does anyone know of another source?

    Thanks Mike, I'm waiting for a reply from vag parts.
    I'm looking for new rather than used so a breaker will be an absolute last resort.

    i've read too many stories of crappy turbo's from breakers to even consider it if i was keeping the car...even if they did offer a 'warranty'..

    I agree mad.

    also VAG Parts are good on price but they won't get anything to you quicker than TT can.

    606 from Audi with a two-year warranty, 412 from Turbo Technics with a one-year warranty (I think I've got that right); both + VAT.

    I was told today that stock has arrived at TT and they will be despatching tomorrow.

    FYI, the VAG p/n is 028 145 702R
