The turbo engine is one of the most exciting features of the BMW e90 3 series. With the cars burst of speed, and the drivers surge of adrenaline, this top selling luxury BME has hooked the attention of enthusiasts for years to come. In some of the e90 or e92 3 series vehicles, manufactured 2006-2012, the turbocharged engine will start to fail somewhere between 65,000 and 100,000 miles.

Pushing over 300 hp, the e90 3 series, which includes the e90 Sedan, e91 Sport Wagon, e92 Coupe, and e93 Convertible, were built with finely tuned turbo engines. The car offers such an addictive amount of speed and torque that it makes some drivers push their BMWs to the limit, sometimes before they let the engine warm-up all the way. This will put undue stress on the turbo and can possibly cause the turbo to fail around 65k miles. Drivers who let their engines properly warm-up before driving can keep the turbo from failing. It is also advised to visit a specialized BMW mechanic to perform the regular Inspection 1 and Inspection 2 maintenance procedures for additional protection.

Even drivers when you take extra care of your engines and perform regular maintenance you can still encounter problems with the turbos in your e90 or e92 BMW. Because the powerful turbo makes the engine perform at higher temperatures, there is an increase in exhaust and turbine temperatures which puts a higher amount of stress on the core bearings. Only a certified BMW mechanic can diagnose the variety of problems that could be caused by the wear and tear on the turbos. If you are encountering problems with your turbo engine skipping, or lack of performance, contact an independent BMW repair professional at Bavarian RennSport.
