Default New Turbos

Well it looks like I'm getting new turbos from BMW. Took the car in yesterday for a waste gate rattle and no boost. Got the call today from my advisor at the BMW Store saying they will replace my turbos under warranty (thank God!) I do have a few mods done to my car but they feel those mods weren't a factor in causing the waste gates/turbos going bad.

Some specs on my car for those that are curious:

2008 135i (build date 01/08)
67k miles
Burger Motorsports DCI
Berk Technology Race Exhaust from stock downpipes

Have a nice 2013 as a loaner car but I already miss my 1.

BMW extended the warranties on the turbos, it's a pretty good deal.

Who is your service advisor; I'm shocked a dealer helped you out when you are modded.

If you don't mind me asking, how much are the new turbos going to cost you?

I still have stock downpipes too, but with a chargepipe and FMIC. I would love to have a service advisor I knew would take care of me with those mods.

I would put those back to stock. If the field engineer were to see that, game over.
