E91 turbo replacement

Hi all,

I'm new to the world of e90s but not BMWs. Having just acquired the MSport touring with 62k I decided to have the oil changed at my local Authorised BMW garage. They called me up and said the turbos needed to be replaced due to worn waste gates. I knew about this and the HPFP issue before I made the purchase but there was no sign when I test drove and listened carefully to the car before purchase. The car has a full BMW history with Sytners and I even called them who inspected the car in Feb and they said all was well. Anyhow I now have the dreaded turbo cost looming and BMW warranty appear to be doing their utmost to wriggle out of covering albeit the car is stock and always serviced by BMW. What the consensus on the best way forward if BMW warranty don't cover it? I've seen a great post of a DIY replacement and I'm handy with tools and have an inspection pit in the garage.

Appreciate any help and advice and thanks for reading!
