    As per my PM, I'd get it taken to Tony Banks in Leeds if it's not too far, they know what they're doing.

    No worries mate, they came recommended to me as well. I'm sure they'll be able to sort you out, from what they told me, they can do literally anything to do with exhausts!

    so should the car feel normal once the exhaust is repaired.
    ?
    Atm the car is really sluggish, and lost a lof power - hoping these are just symptoms from the exhaust blowing.

    well, tony banks exhausts sorted out the problem, pretty cheap aswell.

    Though i still feel the turbo isnt working as it should, what RPM normally does the boost kick in?

    if the dealer told you to go elswhere to fix it, get that in writting then send him the bill.
    Im a bit far but if you wanted to pop over and have vcds scans and boost logs etc to try to get to the bottom of the power issues feel free to drop me your number.

    had a similar experience some years back, went to trading standards in hillingdon but they were useless feckers said they couldn't do jack unless loads of other people have complained about the dealer. so sorry TS are pretty useless too.
