    £410! £160 for discs!!!

    Wow, sorry to hear about that, especially the turbo, out of interest is broken due to lack of oil changes?

    I didn't know the discs needed replacing to be honest. Once the car is totally sorted out I am going to be more thorough on checking things out!!!

    Keep your eyes pealed on eBay for Copens being broken.
    You might be able to save a few hundred on getting a used turbo.
    Ask what mileage the car has done & how often it was serviced.
