Default Turbo Advice

I need advice on my turbo. it started making a nasty nose a couple of weeks ago, i got it to a friends garage n we had a look and he said it felt like bearings, i got it back to where i bought it from as i had only had the car 2 days, he got the turbo sent off and is now telling me its goiing to cost ?475 to get fixed but he would put ?100 towards it. he is doing all the work for free but surely turbo bearings cant be that much?????

Help please.

This is a classic example of why we should all work on our own whips to some extent or degree.

Because if you can't......., you leave yourself at the mercy of wouldbe crooks whom you may have figured wrong because of your lack of knowledge.
