There's always one! Common sense should tell you from the mileage I cover that the majority of my driving is on a motorway, and at high speeds...believe me the turbo is fully used and cared for. I change the engine oil and filter every 6k and also clean the air filter and EGR valve at the same time, the latter I would never describe as being 'full of soot n crap'. I can do all this within 1 hour which I believe is time well invested.
