Take it to BMW and tell them the wastegate is failing and you would like it fixed before it distroys your turbos and costs them more money. Also keep alog of this because when your turbos do fail you can say its premature and was due to this event.

The wastegate allows the exhaust gas bypass the turbo when you lift off the gas pedal.
