    I have a 1999 530d, the turbo is dead! For some time I have had more exhaust smoke than I like and tonight I finally decided to remove the turbo outlet pipe cold side and have a look, more oil in there than in the engine So the oil seals are shot at a minimum.

    Now the question is where is the best place to get a replacement from? (Not cheapest, best, the 2 rarely go hand in hand, but if they do great!) And is there an option off the shelf to upgrade for direct bolt on parts? Like a newer model or a turbo from a 535 perhaps? ball bearing turbos, better nozzle control etc?

    Thanks in advance

    Not a clue on the upgrade option, but you could try here for your replacement. http://www.turbodynamics.co.uk/
