156 1.9JTD m-jet

Replace or Rebuild Turbo

After some months of sitting idle and sullen in the driveway it is now time to fix the turbo on my 156 JTD M. It is the Garrett 716665 1/2 on the 2004 140bhp version. I have been told three different stories by three different major UK turbo specialists.
1st cannot be rebuilt because of unavailable spares, anyone pertaining to rebuild will be doing so from second hand parts, new replacement only at 695+vat
2nd can rebuild, all parts available max 398+vat
3rd new only @435 exchange.
does any one have experience of this, option 3 being the best value as a new unit is obvious but why the discrepencies in story? Should I name and shame?
