    This morning car started with a funny noise like a whining noise and a loss of power not sure if it's a leak in the system or f**k turbo. Cars not smoking. Any advice.

    I'm pretty sure your best option is to get it scanned asap... Any fault codes will help loads..

    This was mine two weeks ago, does it sound like this? Mine had two fins on the turbo chipped off and loads of play.

    but i'm no mechanic. that video is of my car though and it seemed on the older turbo(chinese knock off) that there was a lot of play in the shaft, so the blades were touching the housing which was causing the whine.

    well i bought a second hand turbo for the time being for 190 delivered (Genuine) but i'm getting a hyrbrid sometime in the new year. if your not planning on doing that speak to dan at beach buggy turbos and he should be able to sort something out for you. hope this helps

    What sort of turbo is on a standard s3 k03 or k04 which is best and what do you need to upgrade if put the better one on. My car is standard and want to upgrade stuff and if it needs a new turned might as well start now.

    K04 standard on an S3 , if you wanted to upgrade you would be looking at a K04 hybrid turbo.
