While we're talking cars, found out mine had its turbocharger die this week, after only 60k miles. The repair cost shouldn't be too bad because yay warranty, but still.
Apparently I used my car too much these last few weeks.
I was thinking that too - I have 10 years experience wrenching on Audi/VW in that car scene and CHRA seal failure is really common. Can’t tell you how many charge pipes I’ve popped couplers off of and had oil just draining out lol. The most valuable lesson I got from it was that despite what I had initially thought, I definitely do NOT want a 2.7T. The stage 3 S4s are a riot to drive but that’s only like 45 minutes a month. The rest of the time that engine has a maintenance fetish that I would be unwilling to tolerate even in my most zealous car-wrenching days.
And that's what keeps me away from Audi's. There was a 2016 rs6 for sale here for the same price as my mazda new. I couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger because all I could think of was oil leaks and fi failures
It wasn’t a VW but a BMW.
Ah, Beamers. The most beautiful car, but I’ve had more than my fair share of issues with them.
