Unfortunately, I don't think you'll have much luck trying to get the dealership fix the wastegate rattle unless you buy a new wastegate actuator from out of your own pocket which can cost around $1500 or upgrade your turbos. Not sure if cobb has it, but Procede has a wastegate fix and I get no more rattles after changing the wastegate position.

Sup O, I had waste gate rattle too after beating the sh*t out of my car, but luckily for me it went away after a while. Did you go to Seattle? You can try another SA I heard Alex L was the best guy to talk to for modified cars. There's also a DIY somewhere on the forums but it only works with pass or driver side turbo, I forget which. Best of luck. Btw text me if you're down for some runs tmrw night, gonna get together with some people

From the top, you can only adjust the Bank 2 (rear)turbo wastegate actuator.

I had my turbos replaced by Seattle BMW about two years ago after a software update failed to fix my rattling wastegates.

Service Bulletin - Extended Warranty

Someone posted the pdf of the extended warranty on this over at the 1addicts forum. It applies to the N54 engine.

There's a good description of the issue about halfway down this thread:

My SA was really cool about it. My water pump went out and I just told them about the rattle and I got a call from my SA about the turbo/wastegate getting replaced.
