I'm not sure if the turbos blew right after I bought it or if I got the car with blown turbos and I just didn't trip the indicator until 82.5k miles. Either way, it's looking like a new set of turbos for me paid out of pocket.
That makes me furious, I would make a stink about this. I believe you have a case. Tough to prove but essentially you bought a car that wasn't up to par. But without it being CPO, not sure what you can do. Don't let this dealer replace your turbos if you go that way. Or shove this car up their ass.

Notify BMWNA about this shady dealer. Was it a certified dealer?. But in the end Caveat Emptor!
