Time for a new turbo??

So my 147 16v JTDM has had a noisy turbo for quite awhile. Until very recently it hasn't had any other problems other than whining merrily away.

On a longish drive today I noticed when I put my foot hard down there's a brief puff of whitish smoke out the back. It only happens if I put my foot right down.

Normal day to day driving I don't see it at all.

Should I rush out and buy a new turbo? I'd prefer to do it towards the end of the year if I can.

I've been quoted about 12000ZAR for the complete genuine Garret turbo which is about 640 Pounds minus the labour.
