No boost issues, but I am thinking of replacing them as preventive maintenance as my warranty expired recently.
IF you are not having any boost issues, then just leave them at 90% and live with a bit of wastegate rattle for now.
After all, you only hear the noise when you have the hood open so who cares?
I dont mind the buzzing, im just worried that its malignant to the engine. I can live with the buzzing, but not that horrid rattle on cold starts (anything over 60% gets ride of the rattle). So, if its not malignant, then i guess i have no reason to worry?
Also, what are you replacing the wastegates with? How much?

No problem, glad to finally give back to the community?
Let us know what you find out. I hope someone mechanically inclined can let us know if the buzzing/farting is bad, and if so, how to get rid of it.
