Assuming that your car is registered in OH, since your profile shows Cleveland, OH, you are not covered under the PZEV warranty like @namelessman, who is in CA.

Yes I am registered in Ohio. I bought the car in Virginia but I believe the guy bought the car new from California. That would be a disappointment if it goes only by current state registration.

It is specific in your warranty book that it is now registration based.

"*The California Emissions Control System Limited Warranty SULEV (PZEV) applies to all 2013 U.S.-specification BMW SULEV (PZEV) vehicles registered in California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island or Vermont. The SULEV (PZEV) models registered in Oregon, Pennsylvania orWashington have different emissions warranty coverage."

"California Emission Control System Limited Warranty* This warranty applies to California certified vehicles distributed by BMW of North America, LLC (BMW NA) or sold through the BMW NA European Delivery Program, registered and operated primarily in California."

Apparently this is good in NJ too! I did not receive a letter, but I know that I have a 2013 328 with the N26 engine. Dealer said that the turbo had to be replaced but that it was covered. I only have 108K on this, so I guess I have a few more miles to go....

That's awesome that you're in one of these states and that they covered all of the repairs for you. I just have to hope my turbo doesn't go out.

The drivetrain malfunction light came on a couple of times, but went out after restarting the car and it ran fine after that. I set up an appointment to get something else fixed (unrelated) and the night before I dropped it off, the low oil pressure warning came on. Stopped the car and shut it off. Started it back up and the light was off. Checked the oil level via iDrive and it said it was full, so I drove it home and then to the dealer the next day (lights did not come back on during this driving).

FYI, it will be cheaper to pay to have the car fixed than move to NJ (I moved here from Ohio)!

So has dealer fixed the turbo oil line and/or turbo?

Dealer is working on it now, but said this would be covered. If all goes as planned, I will pick it up tomorrow (4/21). I'll post the results when I know more.

Dealer called last night around 5 and said the car was ready to be picked up (originally said Friday so it was a nice surprise).

Oil line and turbo were both replaced at N/C. Turbo was re-manufactured (I believe) part. I forgot to bring the details with me, but there were several parts replaced (seals, gaskets, o-rings, etc.) under this SIB.

Now if only they had the same deal for the cracked rim....

The new turbo should last another 100k+ miles. My SA said a new turbo will be at least $1k+, so the PZEV warranty does provide value.

I'm certainly not going to complain about this being repaired for no charge. I'm also glad that the dealer is on top of the warranty and seems to be looking out for me. I guess they do want me to come back....
