I've had my 03 Lag since it was 18 months old and I love driving it. I tend to thrash it a bit sometimes but it is fairly forgiving. I have spent about 3K on repairs mostly on a new gearbox/clutch/flywheel after a bearing failure. The electronics are a drag, but so far I have only had to replace the GPS antena (40) and am soon to repair the climate display and passenger window with failed memory.

My concern is about the Turbo , I have had no serious engine problems and have heard about turbo issues. What can be done, if anything, to prevent problems from occuring on a car that runs fine?

I have seen mention of replacing pipes, etc... any pointers?
Currently in Paul Dengel's garage:
57 BMW 520d (177 bhp) SE Tourer and a 51 1.2 16v Clio Dynamique
