Hey guys, I'm also plagued with the awful wastegate sounds just like the video that the OP posted and I really cannot take it anymore...Only problem is I'm WAY out of warranty and currently have 82K miles on my 335...what are the chances that I could have my turbo's replaced or at least the problem somehow fixed even being out of warranty? I believe my car does fall under the time period or warrantied cars with this problem but the fine print Ive read says the warranty is only covered for a car up to 80K miles or 8 years...whichever comes first...I'm tuned and the car still seems to pull as hard as it did when I first got the tune but the sound has been there for a year now. Any input appreciated. Thanks,
