Isn't the turbo suppose to whine? I mean mine does, doesn't seem like anything is wrong though.

Yes, of course it should whistle, but I'm talkiung about the siren whine some members experience, due to bearing wear supposedly.

Good for you.... I wish BMW would treat us Canadians as well as they treat you guys.

Were you modded when you took the car in or were you stock?

I had FBO's and JB4

I guess it really matters what BMW you go to.. I recently moved from So-Cal they denied me for the same work, I am now on the east coast and back home and they are so much friendlier around here! but i will say, make sure you are friends with or friendly with the service tech and SA that does your work. and Yes wastegate rattle same symptom that is on the BMWNA paperwork

200K? Did they tell you that?

I know they extended the turbos to 8yrs/82k, but most OEM parts come with a 2 yr warranty. So is the implied, that this particular part comes with 8y/82k? And by extension the HPFP 10yrs/120K?

Ya the turbo's and HPFP got the extended coverage. Again only for American cars. US cars imported into Canada or 335's sold in Canada from the dealership don't get the same coverage because they:

'come from a different plant in Germany and don't suffer from Wastegate or turbo problems'.

Somehow even the US imported cars into Canada magically don't get coverage. Interesting web of lies BMWNA tries to spin.

It's usually extremely loud even under low load and minimal boost, any other associated small whines are a "normal characteristic" of the car.

So you are saying every time a turbo gets replaced in a used BMW within a current warranty period at a service center, it will carry another 8yr/82K warranty? HPFP 10/120? Wow, ad infinitum!

Well no I assume when your cars mileage goes over 82,000miles the warranty would no longer apply (I am just guessing though I am really not too sure).

I am referring to you lucky Americans who actually get extended BMW warranty on the wastegate up to 82,000 miles or 8-years (which is 131,000 km's). Many of us with wastegate rattle up in Canada have argued how can they give you guys an awesome extended warranty for those parts but not honor our wastage issues up in Canada.

The fighting and arguing is still on-going until they also honor our cars, which in case anyone is wondering are all made in the same BMW factory.

I would think it will follow to you guys as well if more demands are made on BMWCAN. Sadly it might take a serious situation to make it come to fruition. Keep the faith fellow Northern BMW brother!

haha If you wander up to the Canadian section of this Forum there is talk of a class-action lawsuit.

The thing is, that takes a very long time. To sue personally will take more money than it will to cover the cost or replacing the turbo's yourself and your still not guaranteed to win in court.

Its just a pain in the ass really, they know there is an issue with their wastegates so step up and fix the problem or at least extend to us Canadians the same extended warranty you guys are receiving. Heck my car is even a US car, I bought it in SOCAL and imported it..... they STILL won't cover it. Its sort of a let down to be honest.

sorry for the confusion what I was trying to imply is that I will have my 335i until 200k much cheaper and easier now. not that it is insured that long

Canadian cars don't actually come from a different factory that are magically made with better parts that don't break - someone is feeding you a bunch of BS.

Cars are made in the same factories and imported to Canada and the US. E90's were made in a few factories, so may have specific destinations, but E92 and especially E93 where only made in one factory and all the N54's were made in the same factory with the same turbo's that have the same defect.

So how long is this new extended warranty on the turbos? 8yr/82k miles? I'm at 102k miles with an 07 and my wastegates are rediculously rattling so I am out of luck correct?

I've got stock twin replaced 2 times already. First twin set went while I was on original warranty...the second set got replaced during extended warranty about 3 months ago.
All works were done with full bolted-on modifications...lol.

Without extended warranty, I would have to pay about $9.5k in replacement parts and labors for all the repairings by now...
Highly recommend to buy extended warranty if you plan to keep your cars, guys!

yes sorry to say they are out of warranty, I would take it to BMW ask them if they would replace them being how you just found out about this, the worst they can say is no.
