Oil Leaking from Diverter Valve/Cut off Valve

So I went for a service oil change at a VW dealership where they told me that the turbo cut-off valve (or diverter valve, whichever is more appropriate to state that exists in a MK6 GTI) needs to be replaced. My problem is that I had the same problem over 15 months ago during another oil change. Is it true that the OEM diverter valve in a 2011 VW GTI uses diaphragm functions instead of a piston. Do I have the diverter valve replaced with another OEM part but that has a piston? If so, which part is the one with a piston in (a nice distributor company). Also are there any blow-off/diverter valves that acts as kit with no other needs for different parts or that are complicated to install?

Might post pics later if people are questioning of its status.

Thank you
