    The a3 is losing oil and blowing blue smoke on start up quite often now, its sitting on 123k miles. I suspect it will need a head rebuild and a turbo refurb/replacement to keep it alive. The MPG is low 19/20, the maf and ait were covered in a film of oil last time i checked, the pcv system must be knackered at this age. Its also loosing coolant but i suspect its the coolant flange as theres pink coolant residue covering that area and dripping onto the gearbox housing.If I were to get the head rebuilt and a second hand refurbed turbo put in what are the ballpark figures im looking at in the West london area. I dont have the space or time to do any of it myself, not to mention never having done anything like this before. Am I better off selling up? Alot of people would at this stage go BT but they also do most of the work themself saving the labour cost, I dont really have this option :(
