Brought my car to Sterling and spoke with Tony. Says there's no recall on the wastegate and wanted me to the pay $160 for a diagnosis fee and then that would be applied towards the ~$2800 total cost of the wastegate replacement if it were the case. Told me the bulletin was there to help the tech diagnose but in the end I would be the one responsible for paying for all repairs....

Sucks there's no consistency procedure wise for the BMW dealers to handle this issue.
