    Engine expired

    Driving a diesel has just got a whole lot more expensive for me last night. My engine expired while on the continent.
    I think the turbo broke and the engine ingested a bit of debris...... Will find out today what the damage is.......... I wasn't even kicking its *ss.

    Ouch! Were you on holiday? I hope you had some sort of roadside assistance to get you home etc.

    I was away on business. I used my international RAC cover. So far that has worked ok. The car is now at a friendly Seat garage I know in the south of Holland.

    We'll see what progress it will make. Just heard that my other Audi in the UK has a failed alternator. Great. Maybe I should have bought Japanese...........
