My e93 has just shy of 108xxx km. I was told by the dealer that the turbos have been replaced once before in 2010. Does that sound normal? Let's say about 50xxx km ago. Is that the lifespan of the turbo? Regardless I'm probably going to pick these ones up and fix
It myself at a friends shop.
Something is strange , I have 120K on my car, been running 16 lbs of boost since early 2008 and have not touched my turbos, still running strong as I did a full 1-4th wot today all at 16 Psi
