If BMW can't fix it in 3-4 consecutive times, demand a new one. Like another member said, there's no cure for what you and AU335 are experiencing, parts in a turbo should not move in directions they weren't meant to, end of story. God Speed.
It wasn't always like that though and there are more and more people that are experiencing the ticking sound.
It's leading me to believe that the wastegates are coming loose after so many miles.
Again, my car is running perfectly with 15 psi of boost at WOT.
It's just that the wastegates are loose.
I'm waiting to hear back from Autotalent to see if they have the turbos off their car still.
