What was the resolution on the Turbo problem?
Waiting for written confirmation of a seemingly generous goodwill gesture from Porsche GB. :geek:

Estimate for two new turbos (parts, labour and VAT) = £11,502.11 :shock:

Amended estimate net of goodwill gesture from Porsche GB = £2,295.

...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!

It is, a new Turbo for my daughters 3.5 year old Mini was quoted at over £3k! Get it booked in before they change their minds.

P.S did get the Mini Turbo as good will but still had to pay for some additional items once stripped, so just be aware your £2295 may incur some scope creep. :|
