2009 E91 320xD Turbo oil leak


BMW E91 320xD, N47 engine, 220000 km

The other day i smelled this sort of burned oil i the cabin while driving. Left the car at a local workshop and they claims that the turbo is broken.

Now, is it reasonable to assume that the turbo is broken when I do not experience any power loss? I can see that it is sticky at the turbo seen from the top. It is common for gaskets or pipes break down like this?

The workshop said that is was going to cost me 1700. I'm not taking any changes on this since had the timing belt renovation a year ago that cost me 1500
