update on my car/335xi

As of today my car has been at the bmw dealership for 10 days!!!! At first the dealership thought the problem was my fuel injectors, but after doing more diagnostics they found out the problem was my turbos. Good thing is i now have two new turbos in my car, bad thing is, they still doing more tests. the mechanics say on the scale of 1 to 10, the turbos are only putting out enough pressure at a 6 but should be putting out enough pressure to a 10. Now they are checking for carbon buildup in the car. What else could be the problem, any opinions or ideas?

A restriction in the exhaust.

Is the CANflap working?

well at least you got free turbos, now it appears they are looking for some maintenance items to recoup their cost!
unless your still under warranty

Usually the simplest explanation is the problem. I took my car in for new plugs, 8 days later with an engine misfire, the plug was bad. I did have an extended demo of a 2013 X3.
