...part of me is thinking that £2,295 for two brand new turbos is pretty good value for money in Porsche world... 🤔
Agreed, I'd snap their hand off Simon, particularly for such a heavily modified car!
Thanks, Nick! 👍

^^^ Indeed, MikeM! But having the engine out to replace two turbos and various other parts (massive parts list on estimate) saves them charging me 8 hours labour to investigate the coolant leak...! Obviously, there may be cost involved in actually fixing the coolant leak...

After that reduction, I assume they asked you to go for a long walk around the block or a bicycle rather than a Porsche courtesy car :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Simon is your Carrera T outside of warranty? If in warranty why wouldn't they cover all the costs?

Yes, Arif. Warranty expired on 6th April. Didn’t extend due to certain mods. ;)

^^^ Indeed! They’re covering 100% of parts costs (a very long list!) with a 25% discount on the labour too! :)
