There are two issues that cause whine /whistle , the turbo or the balance shafts.

Looking at the topix document a while ago dealers are struggling to identify which is causing the noise as both vary with rpm.
So this might explain turbo changing followed by new engine ( balance shaft issue) .
JLR ask for noise files now before authorising balance shaft changes / turbo repairs as they sound is pretty close.

The turbo whistle on the first one got increasingly noisy and although it did not fail, the car seemed much better (quieter anyway) with the replacement. Having recognised the noise with the 2nd turbo, I got it replaced sooner and the car has been fine since - I’m still listening out for it though but have greater confidence with this replacement.

I would suggest you take it to the dealership and let them take a look (or listen); you’ll not miss the noise once it’s fixed!

BTW, this whistling noise that you speak of, do you have a recording available? I've only been in a few cars with turbos and they all whine and whoosh so I think that is a characteristic of the engine, but would be good to know what its NOT supposed to sound like.

I thought i would re visit this forum and update you all as once again i have had another Turbo failure ,
I wrote the original post and can confirm it to be true.
At one of the earlier incidents 2 turbos were changed within days at the dealership as when on the test drive the one they just installed failed!
Proof i can give and videos of whistling Turbos? No problem.

My turbo blew today whilst driving on the motorway! Made a loud bang with lots of smoke coming out the back, then reduced power I couldn’t believe it. To make things worse it took 3.5 hours to be recovered from the motorway, To say I’m unhappy is an understatement.

Switched from BMW to JLR in 2017, really wish I hadn’t, the car has been in the workshop more times in the past two years than I have had routine services with BMW’s in the past 7 years :cry:
