    If you did chop it in you'd probably end up reading about loads of faults on the new car. The internet can be a thing of evil.

    With regard to the Garrett turbo. I think the later BMW e90s had a Garrett turbo and that is considered highly reliable compared to the shrapnel shooting Mitsubishi one so just be greatful we don't have them. :)

    Apart from that a clean bill of health!
