I have recently had experience of a 320d Compact blowing a turbo .Did you see 'Big Chef Little Chef' on channel 4 recently?.Well,the manager of the Little Chef (Michael) was the owner of it.......thats about as big as the celebrity name dropping gets around here..I replaced the turbo ,then it came back as it stopped boosting properly,the problem was traced to a pair of blocked cats.....only available from BMW......900 from them.

It's given problems since too......

But again,if you drive one you'll want one,they are very quick feeling cars.
On the subject of name dropping, my daughter's ballet teacher's husband is the brother of ... the chuckle brothers!!! Yes, he is a comedian
