Question 2009 A3 2.0T Turbo to Downpipe Question!

Hello All,

New user - first post.

Just bought an '09 Audi A3 Quattro 2.0T. Has an APR Stage 1 chip on it, and came with Carbonio Intake and APR downpipe.

I'm having the downpipe installed today and I get a call from the shop saying that one of the bolts (top front) between Turbo and DP is snapped off.

They tried to remove it but could not. Said I'd have to remove the turbo and drill it out, or ride with only 3 of 4 bolts attached.

What should I do??

That seems awfully expensive - but I don't want a leak between the Turbo and DP obviously. Anybody else deal with this?

Wait they broke the bolt and aren't going to fix it themselves? This is the point of having someone else do the work instead of doing it your self, so if something goes wrong they are responsible to fix it.
