Keep us updated. Mine rattles when the engine is still warming up when I let off the throttle. I have to buy an OEM charge pipe before I can bring mine in for this service; mines currently drilled for my meth line

Curious why it doesn't include the 335is or 1M.

only thing you need to return to stock is boost... it says modifications to turbo or wastegate... hardware, software or otherwise

I never had this issue, but I've heard it on other N54's. It's an absolute embarrassment. Glad they're finally taking care of everyone with the problem.

Go figure I'm at 85,000 miles, the rattle is driving me crazy. Maybe I can sweet talk them into fixing it still.

So being that I have , DPs, FMIC, DCI, COBB AP, and soon Meth, Im guessing Id have to take all this stuff off in order to get the wastegate fixed under warranty? I know the tune is easily removed. But everything else is alot of money and labor involved. Or can I just leave everything and remove the tune?

it's best to remove any obviously visible mods unless you have an understanding service adviser.

Awesome news that they finally have taken some ownership of a problem that has been swept under the rug for several years now.

Sir... you have just made my day .

Hopefully, just the removal of my tune is all I need to do. I refuse to touch these downpipes again unless it's below 65 degrees outside.

Not to be the bearer of bad news, but I just heard BMW appealed it within the last week. I was looking into this as well.

That was what my dealer told me...that it is all on hold. I am pretty modded and dont have stock parts, so I may just suck it up and replace them myself.

Notice how it does not mention the actuators. Just the hard parts of the turbos.

I was just told by one of my local dealers that all mods must be removed or they will not even look at the car. To be honest by the time I have all the parts removed, and then put back on it will cost a small fortune anyway. I may just take a chance and stick with the wastegate rattle and hope for the best. I think I have some time anyway with an 07 with 38,000 miles.

Unless the warranty document is fabricated, your dealer is blowing smoke.

The document states that the warranty coverage is under a court-approved settlement, in which case it was agreed to by BMW.

I am confused a little bit. Is this considered a recall? Or is this only applicable to the listed vehicles that have a warranty still as well??
