My guess is your local authorized BMW service shop doesn't care if they get paid from you or from BMW for the most part. If fact I would tend to lean towards they would rather make you happy, with less out of pocket, to keep you coming back after you are out of your 4/50 warranty.

They said BMW wouldn't go further with the turbos until we did this first. At least they said it might still rattle afterwards- in which case they would go forward. But BMW seems to think that the rattling on my 07 with 72k on it could be caused by these solenoids instead. Am I being jerked around or does this sound about right?

I authorized the repair, but i'm crossing my fingers that the rattle will still be there and I end up with new turbos either way.
