Hi There

Thanks in advance for any assistance as this is my first discussion in forum.

We bought an i800 (2010 plate) last February and initially everything seemed fine as it had low miles 72k on clock.

Only last week I took to a garage to have the Air Con topped up and asked them to investigate a 'Whistlening noise' which had become more noticeable over the last 2 weeks when accelerating and thought it worth checking.

Garage called and said nothing wrong with Noise and sounded like a healthy turbo.

3 days later, vehicle went quickly from whistleing to almost limp mode with horrible scraping noise to a situation where the vehicle wouldn't turn off and stuck at high revs, bellowing smoke until it blew out.

We were so shocked, we had to call the Fire Brigade.

Anyway I'm back to see the garage who said nothing was wrong, but more importantly if this is a Turbo malfunction if this is fixable would the engine still be worth rescuing ?

Any ideas, thoughts greatly appreciated.
