525d turbo fault
My 2001 525d with 133000 miles on the clock has lost power a couple of times recently. Press the accelerator and nothing much happens and then the turbo kicks in belatedly. Took it into BMW who said that the diagnostic revealed no stored fault. They suggested replacing a small pipe and a sensor as the first stage to avoid heavy expense.
They did say however that there was a very small oil leak from the turbo which over time would only get worse. A new turbo would cost €1200 but they said that they could get a turbo rebuilt for a much lower cost with a 1 year guarantee against the 2 year guarantee of the new part.
Any one any experience of rebuilt turbos or any other advice in this area, please?
