Can't expect a smart answer if your original question is not on the smart side.

Dude I totally understand you. I've had elusive noises that, of course, would NEVER happen at the dealer

Would be hilarious if you piped a rattling sound through the speakers and the foreman and techs heard it

Loosen up the bolt near the back turbo where the waste gate is at. If you loosen it up enough you get a LOT of rattle. Basically the fix for the wastegate is to tighten that screw. Where you loosen it up

I'm 19 and made my own handy tool because it's hard to reach that spot. Took me 30 min in total. If I had the right tool it would of taken me 2-3 min to tighten it up. But you have to loosen it up

C'mon guys, let's all take up a collection to buy him new turbos. It sounds like he deserves it - I mean, with his work blocking his social media activity and BMW not replacing seven year-old seals, it's almost as if he's entitled, right?

You left out the part about them rattling at the wrong rpm.

Reverse of the Mr.5 Rattle fix may do the trick.

This reminds me of a poor guy from this forum that beat the crap out of his turbos as he got close to 82k hoping to blow them. The damn snails survived, then crapped out at 84k LMAO

All jokes aside OP, I see what you are trying to achieve. Who wouldn't want a fresh set of turbos for free? I know I would. But you are gonna get flamed for asking how to commit warranty fraud all day.

I guess this is what happens when a BMW reaches the age of when it can be afforded by kids working at BK as they sell on CL for 9k LOL

Well first of all, even if you did get new turbos, theyll still rattle i have brand new ones with maybe 500 miles and they rattle. Thinks its due to all the mods. Second, if i were you id be looking at 3rd party warranties, because with this car, the turbos are the least of your worries. Also with a 3rd party warranty you can take it to a indy shop, they get the money for new oem turbos, you say you want hexon or pure or whatever u want, you pay diffrence, you get upgraded turbos.
