Default 2002 A3 1.9 TDi turbos (UK spec)

Hi all, looking for some opinions on replacing the turbo on my A3. I have the chance to get something from a friend of a friend who works at Garrett and i'm wondering 'should i just replace stock for stock or get something with a bit more'?
What is the model number of the stock turbo on the UK A3's?
What are the options for something with a little more poke that don't need huge mods to get them to fit?

Any help or opinions appreciated, abuse less so.
