So not everybody's early N54 "blows up" at 45K miles - it may be next year before I get to that point, but I'm not anticipating any trouble.
In the case we're discussing here, I don't think we're getting the full story.
Mine is an aug 06 build as well. I have 74k miles.
Hpfp replaced once at 60k miles
Turbo boost lines replaced at 60k miles
Turbos replaced at 74k miles
Those were the only problems I've had. Maintenance all preformed on time based on CBS data.
I think aug 06 built cars were a strong build. Despite the wastegate problem.
My n54 going strong
