The most frustrating thing to me is that I will now have to take the car in 5 or 6 times, which is a complete waste of my time, before BMW will actually do anything to fix it. Software, adjustments, etc. are just BS ways of skirting the real issue. The turbos need to be replaced probably, even though the car 'drives' fine.
I really worry about the ability of some guy in a shop, with his boss standing over him with a stop watch reassembling my engine in the same fashion they did in the factory. How on earth do they find enough techs to replace injectors, turbos, waste gates and fuel pumps.
