Just wondered if anyone has bought one new/recon and how much they paid? This is the next on the list for me and just want to find the cheapest, ive had a quote of 387 + vat and post for a recon unit.

right found myself a turbo £300 only 100 miles of use and a genuine gm unit bought from regal, seems to be a resonable price. got to do some more traveling (chilwell in nottingham) to pick it up.
