Well had my astra coupe down at Regal today and went to a phase 3 from a phase 2 as my old turbo was knackered!
The wastgate was totally jammed the recylce dump valve was being pushed off and had stripped some thread so leaking air and there was a crack in the housing plus the turbo clamp had been split!
I am kinda confused though as the phase 3 turbo costs £740 on the website and thats what i was quoted and paid but I was also charged another £170 to get the old turbo repaired so that Regal cost then get it reconditioned so they could sell it?? Is that right?? and if so if I bought the turbo on it's own say over the net would it now cost nore than £740 to cover their loss from the exchange one that they won't get as i would buy the turbo on it's own??
I tried going through the buy process on the net up to the point where i put my CC details in and the price was still £740. So why have I paid them to get my turbo repaired so that they can sell it and make more when it belongs to me?
Anyone have any ideas as I think it should be clear whether there is an exchange required?
