There is another thread in engine section that has been following this lawsuit for months now since BMWNA lost the suit.
I'll have to check my maintenance book again, but I am 90% certain that the list of covered parts for my 2008 model includes the turbos. Maybe what is being covered in addition due to the lawsuit is the wastegate rattle problem, which wouldn't really affect emissions. I do know the settlement specifically mentioned the wastegate issue.
