Hi,

We got few month ago a 2002 New Beetle. But now is leaking oil from the turbo, is not much, but if the car keeps parking for a week (like my last trip abroad) you will find oil on the floor.
A mechanic told me that the turbo is not operating well, actually, with the car stop, and accelerating up to 4000RPM for few seconds and then release it, you can hear a not nice sound from the turbo, like a scrape sound.
Also when I drive on highway and run the car, you can feel that Turbo is not pushing all the time...

So, I'm looking for a new turbo, a K03 or K03s. I saw on Ebay between $200.00 up to $600.00.
I don't live in USA, but I go often, so Ebay is the option that I know.

Witch brand will you recommend??? Or, are any other places that I can find it??

thanks

Leo

A cheap ebay turbo isn't going to hold up. They're cheap for a reason. And you'll want the KO3s.
