    Need Help near Boston.

    My right exhaust is pouring smoke and I am going to need to take the car someplace. Anyone know of any shops in the area who could handle changing turbos?

    Right now I am sitting on I-90 west of Worcester.

    Brentuning is down/near there, he doesn't do work but I'd imagine he may know someone who does since he's tuned about 60 trillion different cars. No idea if he's still around tonight or not, it's after 7 there now...

    Yeah and it's a Friday so I don't know what the $#@! to do. I'll look into it though. Any other suggestions?

    I moved away from that area 2 years ago, and had just got my N54, so no dealer/mechanic trips; no personal experience. Sorry bud. I had a Subaru die on the dyno at PSI and one of the guys that worked there switched out my turbo (twice... long story about defective turbos, ugh) but the BMW's are such a PITA to change turbos on...

    Anyway, it's my only guess, sorry it's not that helpful. Their listed number is: 508-407-8486 and they're in auburn.

    VRSF is located about 30 minutes from where you stopped so maybe Tiago could have helped you out. Sounds like you have it handled though.

    As stated above, VRSF is in that general area and has a shop. Not sure if they could do turbos but they might have been worth a call. Either way, looks like you have it handled so hopefully it all works out.

    I don't think they even have a shop/lift. Pretty sure it's just a sales office since the DPs are made in China

    I'm not 100% sure either way but I imagine even if they don't they could have at least pointed him in the right direction. Click here to enlarge
