4000 miles and two trips to dealer later, turbo is finally working in my car. Let's just say I can finally smile again, even though I still got dusted by a M3. <br>Both visit they claimed the problem was turbo control valve, and the 2nd time it took them 4 days to complete the work.<p>New problem, when I come to a slow stop, there's a noise I can't describe right before the car stops, sounds like a metal rubbing sound, a low pitch whine of some sort. Any one has any idea what I am talking about?<br><BR><BR>

Re: Let there be boost (mister2cool)

ive got that same sound sometimes. sounds almost like moving a heavy piece of furniture on a wood floor? i think it is the brakes that make that rubbing sound when moving slowly, could be a rotor alignment issue, hopefully someone will shed some light

They must have taken their time diagnosing it because you literally can change it in about 5 mintues. <p>Glad to hear you finally have boost! We knew you had a problem when you were getting dusted by mid 80's Camrys!

I knew I had a major problem when the loaner 2.5T was way faster than the R.<p>They also warrantied my bubbled tire and the scratched rim it's on, so that was sort of nice of them, saved me time to file claim for wheel\tire insurance.<p>They actually claim that bubbles are not covered by the insurance, anyone with MY06 familiar with the wheel\tire insurance that comes with the car?
