Any experts out there?

Brock: I blame the government.

Sam: it’s a pain in the arse, but on the other hand, the Bockmobile is pretty ancient. Maybe it’s time for a change. But on the other hand, I don’t really want to give up my old Bockmobile. But on the other hand …

Dev: I’ll fit it myself.

I was just wondering if it was even worth getting a used one, but since then I’ve found several on offer at reasonable prices.

Also, my good friend, the Nut, has offered me a loan of his old BMW while we wait for the part to arrive so things are looking up.

Bad buzz. In most cases, you’d be better off replacing the car. Depends on the age, make and what shape the rest of the car is in of course.
My heart goes out to ya.

Not so sure about that. The car is old but in good shape and I can get a turbo for a couple of hundred euros.

In fact, it’s a bit of a classic, in its own way.

What brand? Like if it’s a poo-go or a sit-ron I wouldn’t be arsed, but an old VW/Audi group or the like could be worth while. Actually I’m betting it’s the Renault 5 GTI like Ali G had in the film!

If the turbo died either while you were in the middle of a very important journey, or while it was sitting on the drive without the ignition even being mentioned, I should imagine it is a Citroen CX. Which is largely because I am biased. However, good luck with the replacing thereof, and hello!

If ye need any help I’d love to help replace the turbo.. Not too much knowledge about these things but definitely big interest in cars.
