Hi everyone,

I was coming back from the Nurburgring (great, by the way. Met two black german Evo 6 there - I lapped the 22kms in 9mn40s not knowing the track, this car is really good) when I lost power on the highway. The turbo was not spinning anymore...
After checking, it looks like the wastegate doesn't work anymore, and is blocked in a middle position. So the turbo starts spinning, and then stops as the wastegate dumps air. At the wheel, it feels like you have an air restrictor...horrible, I must have 120 bhp!!
A new wastegate is on its way, but the problem is that the one on my car (which is new) was blocked because it was full of rust... Has anyone had such a probleme with a new car?

Cheers
Tarik
