Fuel Economy: Was 43mpg has lowered significantly with my turbo issues
Default New to forum. Anyone ever do business with HansAuto?

Hello I am pretty new to the forum and I am pretty sure my turbo is just about shot. I have an 04 Jetta Tdi engine code BEW. I am looking around for a reliable yet economical turbo replacement and I saw one on a site called HansAutoparts. Was wondering if anyone has ever done business with them. This particular turbo is a rebuild and I've been hearing mixed things about buying a rebuild. Any advice is greatly appreciated. -Zac

Do not buy any important parts from this guy. He has singlehandedly destroyed more VW engines that anybody else. Start reading here: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=207007

Have Fun!

That’s a loaded question on this forum.

Better than a rebuild is a used one. Keep watch of the for sale section on this forum.


Or a new one from idparts.com, metalmanparts.com, cascadegerman.com, tunemyeuro.com.

All of these places offer quality parts. A week or so ago I think tunemyeuro was doing a sale on turbos.
