I bought mine used cpo at Crevier, they gave me a hard time with just changing the sparkplugs under warranty. About 1 month later I took it to Monrovia BMW and they noticed the noise and changed it for free at 49xxx miles. Moral to the story try another dealer. I here Mc Kenna is good too.

Hi all I'm new to the forum and have this issue. Rev the car while in N and turbos at clunky/rattly while reving down. My problem is, I only bought it about a month ago. It didnt have this problem when I bought it. The dealership is saying the turbos will be replaced if need be but the waste gate hoses are not covered and they cannot determine the turbo issue unless the hoses are replaced. This is incorrect right? They are charging 650 for the hoses and will 'pay' half so 325 out of my pocket. I'm under the impression the waste gate and turbos are covered under this extended warranty, right? By the way, I'm at 81,000 miles. Any advice?

Try making a new thread, that should get you a faster response.

At the end of the day my SA called me and told me that the tech did determine that the waste gates were the cause of the rattle but that BMW NA denied my warranty claim... I asked for additional information about this, specifically what the cause for the denial was, and he was unable to give me any additional information.

I then proceeded to call BMW NA and after speaking to Tier 1 and then Tier 2 support the only information I was given was that back in 2011, the person was unable to give me a specific date or even a month, my VIN was flagged to void my warranty. I once again asked for a reason of why this was done and the person was unable to give me a reason.

While picking up my car from the dealer I asked to speak to the service manager, once again the only information I was given was that my VIN was flagged to void my warranty but he was unable to give me a reason for this.


I am kind of stuck at this point, but I plan on calling BMW NA again, and calling the dealership once more because there has to be a reason for the "voided warranty" and the denial of the warranty claim on the waste gates.
Did you buy this car cpo's. is the engine half power light on?? did you try taking it to a diff dealer? i would give beverly hills and center bmw a shot they seem pretty good.

I feel like the are apprehensive to just replace waste gates.
If theres an issue enough to do that id assume they would just do full turbo replacement.

Just the annoying rattling sound.... When it starts, after about a minute it goes away though

so is the Turbo waste gate problem just a noise? will that noise lead to any potential problems? yesterday morning I got in my 2007 335i Coupe (62k miles), which was running fine the day before, pressed start and the car just sputtered. Although it was struggling at idle and sounded like it was misfiring or not running all cylinders. I drove about a 100yrds and then parked it. Definitely, no power when I gave it gas. Blue/White smoke began pouring out of the tail pipes. I could also see oil (or what seemed like an oily substance) in the tail pipes. I kinda figured I blew a head gasket or something, but the car was cold when I started and my fluid levels seemed fine.

5 months ago I spent $1400 for a new alternator and Battery. 1 month ago I spent $700 for a daytime headlight bulb and an oil change. I'm bleeding money and have nothing left to fix this new problem on my dream car, which I do love, but has been nothing but problems. I bought it new and I've had almost 2 dozen warranty issues.

Any extremely helpful and inexpensive ideas?

I had tried to fix the wastegate rattle myself by tightening the actuator rod as mentioned in another thread. It did help, but did not get rid of the rattle completely. I actually set it back to normal and a little looser before going into the dealership lol. I was getting a pretty bad rattle on cold starts as well as low rpm acceleration and deceleration. The SA called me 2 days later and told me they would replace the turbos! I was super excited! Just got my car back yesterday, took them 3 days. It was noticeably more peppy at the throttle even while stock. The difference was pretty dramatic once the JB4 was put back in. Stage 1 felt almost like stage 2. Anyways, I got it done at Stevens Creek BMW for those of you in the Bay Area. The SA was Ken Evans. He was pretty cool guy. As i picked up my car I told him I was excited to put my parts back in. He pretended to cover up his ears and said he didn't hear anything, and then he told me he didn't really care

Anyone have experience working with a central NJ dealer? Had my car for three weeks and have no relations with Princeton BMW, which I am 5 minutes away from. My car, stock, is rattling even at cruising RPMs.

Hi All,

I am about to purchase a 2008 E90 335i with 53K miles. I just want to make sure that this Turbo/Wastegate warranty that started last year is still in effect today before I sign on the dotted line. Thanks in advance!

Get the dealer to pull up the car history and see if any recall was ever done. Recall itself is not mileage limited, IIRC. However, if your car is not on the recall list, or it was already done, then it's on your dime to fix it.

I believe the warranty was 8 years or 82K miles.

If I had an accident, would they still cover the turbo recall? Only rear quarter panel was damaged....and non for the engine compartment. PLus, I have fmic and dp, and I assume they gotta go for me to at least get the rattles checked and possible replaced turbos under warranty. Let me know what you think, guys.

I would assume that as long as you take off the downpipes and restore to stock they must honor the warranty. as long as its under 82k and 8 years- they don't have any record of the accidents and as long as not salvaged you should be ok.

thank you. It's still a gamble though. Taking out dp and fmic might require either extra labor fee or time. I don't have any issue with turbo performance(later will check if I get any leaking boost), at least by what I feel, but rattle is what's bothering me esp when I let my accel off. How can you check if boost is leaking or turbos are not functioning properly?

Still unable to get a specific reason for the denial, trying to push as many people at the dealer and BMW NA until I get somewhere with this.
I heard there is a friendly dealership in san diego u can go to, check the regional section. Don't waste time on that dealership... Other dealerships will help u.
