    Hey guys,

    So i think im starting to get the dreaded Wastegate rattle on my out of warrenty 335i, i called up bmw to enquire into this 8 year 82000mile warranty that iv seen on a few different forums and google searches to be told that there is no such thing. My question is, this extended warranty seems to only be applicable in the usa ( N54 Engine warranty extended to 8 Years/82,000 Miles (Wastegates Only) ) how come if we are having the same issue in the uk we ar not getting the same extension on the warranty or have i been missinformed by the bmw dealership?

    cheers
    David

    Probably because they would get sued in America and have to do a full recall like they did with the e46 subframe failure, works different in USA and they are the biggest market

    It is just a noise from the wastegates rattling but the turbos still work so i suspect a warranty company would just say the usual "wear and tear" unlucky sorry
