    hello i need help now, My turbo is on its way out, there is a lot of oil in the intercooler pipes and there is quite a bit of end float on the turbo shaft, it is a k03s turbo. There is a used one for sale on ebay its from a leon cupra 180hp, but i am not sure if its a k03s. The part number is 06A145704A, I think its just a k03 can anyone help please.

    Personally I wouldn't recommend 2nd hand turbo's, after having some bad experiences finding a bargain at £250.00, spending the time fitting it for it to go within 500 miles and have the pain of removing and refitting it all again.

    We sell brand new K03s unit's, which if I remember correctly come with a 2 year manufacturers guarantee, for peace of mind and trouble free motoring.

    Please see the JBS website link below:-

    If you have any further questions or queries, please do not hesitate to ask!
