In france bmw don t replace only wastegate actuator.
I ve ordered 2 wastegate actuator but impossible in france to change them and calibrate it. And as it necessary to remove turbo they prefer change directly turbo.
So i ve got a game of wastegate actuator new in my house, never used.
Now in france it is not possible to order part number wastegate separatly

Bought my 08 535xi wagon last month which still had 4 months of the 6yr/100,000mi extended warranty. Wastegates were rattling terribly, dealer warrantied both turbo assembles completely, no questions asked. No issues now running Cobb Stage I (which I removed before bringing the car in). Next up, walnut blasting and a DCI.

If the turbos completely fail are they covered under the warranty. Is it likely most turbos fail due to waste gate problems? I'm getting the 30FF and the car is not making any boost. Thanks in advance.

Not to say that a turbo failure is the cause of your code, but the most recent service bulletin regarding the turbochargers and their wastegates/actuators from July of 2012 discusses replacing the turbochargers. It covers a turbocharger failure due to a faulty wastegate/actuator.
