Thanks Jon. I'd prefer a remanufactuered unit rather than a second hand one. The youngest second hand unit will be at least 7-8 years old now. My car is my daily driver and will be doing a lot of miles, so it makes sense to spend a little bit more. I've searched on the net but haven't found one yet.

I'm going to a main dealer tomorrow to see if they offer a remanufactuered part.

Thanks again but they will only be dealing with G-Lader type superchargers, a totally different beastie.

I know its a bit sad isn't it? If we lived over the pond we would be spoilt for choice. If the worse comes to the worse there's always these guys:

I'd have to pay the core and the shipping. I wonder how much one is at a MD?

I haven't tried looking in Germany yet, might be cheaper for shipping.

You could also end up paying import duty and VAT on top Germany could be a good option at least it would be duty free

Once I sent my last, I thought oh forgot the duty!

I'm just glad its not a 320 as its double the price.
