The turbos were replaced about a year ago. The dealer had the car for more than a week that time to get the necessary approvals. So that repair was unrelated to the missing on wide open throttle issue. I paid the dealer (Crevier) for the extended maintenance so from my point of view the dirty valves happened on their watch, not mine. So when I was told it was a fuel issue and that it is not covered under warranty I started arguing. Finally the service advisor tells me that BMW would cover the walnut shells but that I had to kick in 300 for the plugs because they were "collateral damage." what a crock of bull****. It ended up to be 50 bucks (the extended maintenance deductible)
