    A turbo should see the other side of 150k. If you look after it - drive gently for warm up and let it spool down after a drive.

    My mate's Vectra 2.0DTi was always running fine. He serviced it like a fanatic! The turbo went WHEN HE WAS DRIVING THE CAR TO THE NEW OWNER!

    A turbo should last "forever" if taken care of but you never know...
