So, they replaced both turbos. After having my car for two+ weeks, I got it back and there is no rattle at all. FWIW, my car has 93k miles and is still under CPO. I gladly paid my $50 deductible
I am still unsure who this extended warranty is enabled to. My 335i has 50k miles and is not under any type of BMW warranty, is this a recall (will replace independent of warranty like the HPFP is), or is this extended warranty only eligible for those who have a warranty still? Please excuse my misunderstanding, but i've yet to receive an answer.
