Re: Turbos around town

I only ever had an Audi turbo for a few weeks, but I was unlucky enough 
to own a volvo turbo estate car for three years - 100,000 miles worth. It 
was kept outside, not exactly serviced on time, never given a cool down 
idle and certainly not a warm up period.

It went like shit off a stick all of the time. Absolutely reliable. 
Performance was not as good cold, but that didn't stop me booting it off 
the end of my drive in the morning. Used for commuting and bumming around 
town, not good for a car apparently, but I never had any bother with the 
turbo. An Audi, I'd expect, would be even better.
