Re: Car Stuck in French Garage - Insanely Expensive Quote

Is there any possibility the turbo can be disabled so the car is still driveable. I remember borrowing a friends Volvo diesel where the turbo has packed up and it drove ok but acceleration was rather ponderous and overtaking something else was near impossible. It still got around though.

Don't take without giving in return
