Blown Turbo Pipe on 147 JTDM

Hello all, this is my first post but wanted to ask if anyone had similar problems. My 147JTDM had its 36,000 service today and was told that it has a burst turbo pipe, this follows a similar problem from last year when the car lost power on acceleration and had lost of black smoke from the exhaust. The car will be repaired under warranty but a bit concerned if this is the 2nd time in a year. Maybe its the way I drive!

Also read from earlier posts about variation in service costs. I just paid Arnold Clark 225 for 36,000 miles service which i thought was a bit steep. That was with a supposed 15% loyalty discount. The price seems to go up every 12,000 miles and unfortunately Arnold Clark seem to have a monopoly as they are the only Alfa dealer where I live.

Hello. If it's the pipe I'm thinking of it chafes on an exposed stud. Ask the garage to show you which pipe it is and where it runs. They may be able to cut the stud off or pad it somehow.
