Believe it. Same happened here, both snails were replaced without question or hesitation from the dealer. Understand, BMW North America pays the bill on Recalls/Warranty work, so the dealer has every incentive to do the job and get $$$ from BMW NA. It's win/win for you and the dealer.

The wastegate levers, arms, bushing etc, are all part of the issue, and part of the turbo housing itself. So, it all gets replace under the recall if it is out of tolerance.
