Default Need a new turbo (VF39)

Bad news for me today, I need a new turbo... Can anyone point me in the best direction as to where I can purchase a new one(and by new I mean new, not used). I know I can get one from the place servicing my car, but $1250ish seems steep.

I don't think you'll find a new vf for much less. Could be wrong..

Probably sourcing from the dealer, hence the steep pricing. You're at an impasse if you don't want to pay a lot of money for a new OEM turbo.

For an OEM turbo, expect to pay that.

You can save a few hundred with an aftermarket 16g which would also need a tune, which would bring it back inline to the same price.

Suck it up and buy a used VF39/48 and call it a day.

As compared with everything else available (non-OEM), it is steep. That said, it sounds like it isn't crazy in and of itself...gotta pay for OEM. You could ask for some quotes from some of the vendors here, but ask your mechanic what he'll charge to install it (assuming he will at all).
