WARNING: Replacing turbos under warranty.

Not realeasing names of dealership or names of SA but this is just a fair waring to everyone and fourm members. If you get your turbos replaced under warranty (or anypart) it might be a smart idea to take a look at the turbos and inspect everything has been done right.
A friend of mine just brought his car in, i was curious to look at it because i know i had issues installing my turbos and i was just looking around. but i then was looking at the rear turbos hardware, it looked new so i was like yeah they replaced the turbo then i look at the front turbo and the hardware looks old.
So not sure if the replaced the front they did say that they replaced both..
Anyways still poking around and i see one of the lower copper nuts are missing i take a closer look and it actually broken
So i call up my buddy and tell him to take it back, we shall see what they will say/do..
Iknow when i replaced my turbos i had simillar issues that i resolved. but breaking a bolt and leaving it in there is stupid and negligent

here is a link to my issue that got resolved

anyways this is just a warning. check your car out after visiting the dealer

Stealerships will always be stealerships haha.
It's funny how the unaware person thinks they have more peace of mind going to a stealership versus a well known indy shop. I find quite the opposite to be more in sync with reality.
