    Hi
    I have a 330d with a hybrid turbo and have a boost leak, i think it is the pipes from the intercooler to the turbo. Before shelling out on a new intercooler and pipes i was going to take it to a garage to make sure that this is the problem.
    1. I need a decent garage in the North West who will find the problem
    2. Any ideas on a good universal intercooler as i need uprated pipes and they are £700 to get custom made ones for a BMW intercooler because of the crappy fixtures on the end of the pipe (ive had these priced up at a few places) so want pipes that fit on with jubaliee clips.
    3. I am also thinking about having my coilvers refitted and a new re-map as am off to the nurnburgring mid spetember and want everthing fixed and good before i go.
    (Im not using my usually garage as i found out they were a bunch of cowboys removing bolts so i had to go back a month later)
    Any help would be much appreciated Alex

    whatare your symptoms Alex? the usual leak points on these motors is the seals on the boost pipework, which can be purchased seperately from Bmw for about £25 all in. The exhaust manifolds are also a common leak point, i have had mine split twice before i replaced it with an older cast iron one.
