I wonder how much a turbo replacement is We tend to keep our cars a long time. Our Sequoia has +130k miles and our older Lexus has over 160k. Not sure if a BMW FI engine is up the task.

I do like the new diesels though.

Manifold with turbo should be around $2k.

It is actually terrible
Not just for your body but also makes you lose productivity

I am very familiar with the "miles sleep schedule"
