Turbo whistle reving down to idle, 1.9tdi

Hi guys

I've started getting some turbo whistle when the RPMs drop from ~1500/600 to idle RPMs.

It sounds exactly like this:


Is this something serious, should I take the car for the turbo rebuild?

It has 120k km (75k miles), regular oil changes, never thrashed until oil warmed and in general rarely thrashed, first owner.

Is it unusual for this to happen at this low mileage?

I have visited two mechanics and both said it's the turbo :( But the whistle is only the beginning and that I shouldn't worry, to drive it as I used to so far and if it gets worse then repair or replace turbo...
