sounds nice.  mines in the dealer now too.  only 14,000 miles and a
boost leak.  audi wont fix because they claim it's accident damage.  but
the dealer that repaired the accident damage said it was 100% perfect.
 so they have been going back and forth for 3 weeks.  :-(

They also decided to compromise a bit further than they originally indicated.  The dealer installed two (2) new K03 turbos, and two new intercoolers for the price of one (1), plus labor ( i pay 50% of the total).  Originally, they quoted me $3350 for BOTH turbos + $711.00 for ONE new intercooler+ $55 for a new coolant reservoir (dealer claimed to discover a major leak after taking engine out).   In a nutshell, my reduced costs are as follows - Parts: $2275.50 (USD), Labor : $716.25, Total: $2996.75 (USD) + sales tax = $3176.36 I basically paid for new one turbo ($1575) and intercooler ($700) plus 50% of the total labor charge (to drop the engine, replace turbos, intercoolers and re-install). The coolant reservoir become a "N/C" along with 2 pages of gaskets, hoses, clamps, and "O" rings. Again, I want to thank those who offered support off-line - VERY MUCH APPRECIATED! I have not decided to pay the bill and walk or to "push a little  harder" with AoA. I will resolve by the end of the week - either way. Hopefully, these turbos will last beyond another 50k mi (I'm at 53004). Yes, I'm still interested in feedback from those who care to offer. jy
