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.
Hopefully Autotalent still have theirs laying on the ground and are in good condition. Good luck.

If I were you, I would try my best to get the dealer to perform the service bulletin recall on the car, reason is if I were in your shoes, I would be very pissed, and push the envelope to demand a new car from BMW, just my opinion.
