    So my turbo has gone or is almost gone after 4 months ownership of my pride and joy.
    I am still tempted to just sell it as 'S3 FOR SALE requires new turbo' but I haven't had long enough to enjoy it properly so decided to fork out to get it back to full health.

    So, I took her to Glasgow Audi after noticing the car smoking when warm ideling. And they have diagnosed that i need a new turbo and a new Oil feed pipe.
    They quoted me £1500 all-in.
    I cannot afford this sort of money and frankly I don't think it's worth it.

    I am looking for a safe and reputable garage to use in the Glasgow or central belt area for the repair work.

    Please do not post the name of a place if it's your mates - I need a reliable place that has had good feedback from members on here.

    I have had a quote from VW Audi repair centre in Clydebank who seem to get good reports
    They quoted £650 inc VAT.


    If anyone can help, please, please, get in touch. I am an S3 owner in distress.
    I'm still tempted to sell it including the recon turbo if I can't get cheaper than the above quote.

    Cheers,
    Andy

    I've already got the recon turbo sitting here - just need a place that can be trusted to fit it properly.
    Cheers though Dave.

    Are these reputable Adam? Kenny Brown @ Hillington - is that an email? Google search doesn't come up with much.

    kenny brown ran a audi 80 sport rally car for chris wagner, then later ran a S2 for him in the scottish rally championship, he used to service and repair a couple of 22B subaru imprezzas aswell, ive not seen him in a few years, iirc his lad is now doing the scottish rally championship aswell.

    i very much doubt kenny has a website, its not really his kind of thing, old skool and word of mouth fits better.

    Cheers Bazil,

    Aye, I managed to find out who he was eventually. Alot of good things said in various forums...And he has quoted a very reasonable price too.
    Hoping to get it booked in this week.
    Fingers crossed.

    Cheers for heads up folks!!
