Thank you for your reply.

We would suggest speaking with the Service Manager of your local BMW retailer to inquire if the issues you are experiencing would be covered by the warranty extension listed on the document you provided. The Service team is in the best position to assist you from this point forward.

If you have any further comments, please reply to this email or contact the Customer Interaction Centre at 1-800-567-2691. Again, thank you for contacting BMW Canada.

Sincerely,

I went to Maranello BMW and the SA said that there are no Turbo warranties

Thanks for your informative write up on your issue.
They ALL rattle on start up. I don't think thats wastegate.

The steering is also severely damaged: it pulls from side to side depending on the slope of the road and is hard to control when the road is bumpy. The dealer noted that pieces of the car became fused and had to be ripped apart. I think the wastegate defect profoundly damages much of the engine. The thing is incredible turbo lag and this is no longer anything like the vehicle I agreed to buy.

I no longer want to wait to assemble a class proceeding, I will be suing on my own. Best of luck to everyone else. I will still consider posting my statement of claim as a template.

Any progress or update?

Interested to hear how this plays out.

Ya unfortunately now I am over the 82,000 KM on the car so even if it does, I won't be eligible. Anyone know how to roll back kilometers on a BMW? Just joking..... but not really.

This Service Information bulletin supersedes SI B01 02 12 dated June 2012.

SUBJECT

N54 Engine Turbocharger (Wastegates Only): Emissions Warranty Extension to 8 Years/82,000
Miles

MODEL

E60, E61 (MY 2008, 2009, 2010): 535i including xDrive

E71 (MY 2008, 2009, 2010): X6 xDrive35i

E90, E92, E93 (MY 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010): 335i including xDrive

INFORMATION

All issues relating to the last-minute appeal have been resolved and the new effective date of the
settlement is July 11, 2012. The court-approved settlement provides the following relief to the
Settlement Class Members’ vehicles listed above.

SITUATION

BMW NA has agreed to extend, to a total of 8 years or 82,000 miles, whichever comes first, the
emissions warranties covering the Settlement Class Members’ vehicles for any failure of a turbocharger
caused by a defect in a turbocharger wastegate.

The terms of the original New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty and applicable emissions warranty still
apply. BMW NA will not provide warranty coverage to any Settlement Class Member’s vehicle
containing modifications or alterations to the turbocharger or its wastegates (software, hardware or
otherwise), or evidencing other conditions not normally covered under the original New Vehicle/SAV
Limited Warranty or applicable emissions warranty.

Modifications excluded from warranty coverage include any aftermarket parts that affect the
turbocharger system, or if there are other conditions that would normally exclude it from warranty
coverage.

This better cross the border soon! I don't want my turbos to crap out, pay for the repair, and have this turbo warranty cross over into Canada the next day.

I received the yellow engine light and took the car in. 30FF was the code. The car was bought in Calgary and not covered by the warranty. Confirmed that if the car was bought in the USA then the warranty would have applied.

$5349 to fix.

I called BMW Canada (which is not part of BMW North America?!) at 1-800-567-2691 and they told me to contact transport Canada to complain.

WG stuck open and dead turbo.

It doesnt matter if the car was purchased in the US, if the car is now registered in Canada all US warranties are expired

I said that my car was bought in Calgary not in the USA. I am indicating that I had the problem with the WG and SOL and have to pay.

I can understand that Canadian dealers won't honor such warranties(even though the previous owner claims he had no issues getting things fixed when its still under factory warranty at a Canadian dealer.defferent case maybe?)
Anyways,my question is what if I bring the car back to US for the turbo warranty?how could they know if the car has been exported and why would they even check for that in the first place?all they do is grab ur vin number when u bring the car in for something.isnt it?

At first I thought they may not know and it would work. However what about when they ask for your personal details? Or registration?

i have not personally gone through that, its just an assumption. it was a class action lawsuit filed in the states, i believe they have a list of all eligible vins, once yours would be sent back to bmws head office for approval to continue with waste gate replacement they would see you car is not eligible as it is registered in canada. dealerships cannot just replace the wastegates without first having approval from bmw NA

The 'repairs' did not cure the defect. The engine went into limp mode yesterday outside of XXXXX. I'm now told the solenoid failed and that the repair will be something in the nature of a thousand dollars. And, with respect to the sudden loss of power shit that BMW finally disclosed in its March 2013 recall, I already dealt with that. The car suddenly lost power at highway speeds on the XXXX in XXXXXXXX in 2009. The Dealership lied about the cause, now I know it was yet another latent defect.

The 2008 BMW 335i is a dangerously defective car that poses a non-trivial threat to its occupants and to third party users of the highway. I'm genuinely of the view that people might get killed. The power defect, which is the one I experienced in 2009, is by far the most dangerous - the entire car is suddenly without any sort of power, steering becomes dangerously hard and there are no lights, breaking is substantially more difficult and you essentially lose control of the vehicle until it comes to a stop.

There ought to be criminal charges.

The latest 'recall' was issued pursuant to the Motor Vehicle Safety Act http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/acts-regulat...ts-1993c16.htm
