Well it came down to either an actuator or a waste gate... If it's an actuator I owe BMW $3k if its the waste gate I dont owe a dime but at least Alex informed me of my options before they tear into the engine to find out. Unfortunately I am not willing to take a $3,000 gamble especially when I plan on upgrading the turbo's. I think it's pretty shitty how BMW Corporate set that up... It completely talked me out of going forward with the recall because there might be a chance it's an actuator to which is a part of the turbo assembly but not included under the recall. I got a brand new 328 sport as a loaner and I dont know WTF BMW has been thinking but this car reminded me of a Dodge Charger I recently rented. The steering on it felt like a cold limp dead fish.
