Turbo rebuild

Anybody undertaken a turbo rebuild for a N54 135i?

Is this a big $ job using OEM parts or are second hand or refurbished spares available?

Or BMW exchange complete units?

cheers

Speak to Advan, they used to keep RB on hand (or just cores). From memory Justin@Advan was the poster.

Justin@Advan is now just Justin, but I still supply Advan with a few components including RBs and give the guys a hand when required.
