    depending on condition....hell yes.
    pair of second hand rs4 turbos alone went for that on ebay not that long ago.
    I would check the turbos very carefully though, even get someone else to look at them if possible.

    expensive rebuild if shot

    I more meant that if the blowers do happen to be iffy then they can be fixed for a reasonable price.

    Its a good price for the parts i guess, to get all the fixtures and fittings etc is good!.

    As for fitting, its an engine out job. So your talking at least 1 maybe 2 days labour.

    If get the turbos checked before fitting then you'll know if it'll be in your favour to have them rebuilt first or not.

    Be very expensive if you pay for fitting and then they die only to be taken off rebuilt and fitted again.

    To fit just the turbo's is an engine out job so exspect to pay around £900+ and the rest would just be fitted in replace ment of the old stuff the clutch would not be much more I would have thought due to the engine being out anyways.

    It's a good price I think, even factoring in a rebuild for the turbos.

    Thanks for the replice guys :) ok send a email to the guy and here is the reply:The engine mileage was 35000. The engine, turbos, etc ...all are in perfect order


    Onething I am worried is he wants the money wire transfer payment should I trust this guy and if I get any problems can ask the bank to take the money back from his account?

    If you wire the money and he screws you, then your screwed, and you'll be unlikely to see your money again.

    Either use something with a bit of protection, like paypal, or go collect the parts.

    An alternative might be to find someone on here who lives local, get them to check the parts are real and/or collect them, then forward them on.

    As aragorn said, do not send the money via BT, I did this and go absolutely shafted. My bank didn't want to know and couldn't help me either :( In the end I had to contact the police.
