Mein Auto: 2007 335i coupe
2007 335i waste gate rattle

Hello everyone . I have a e92 335 with only 38k miles and I'm getting the rattles that everyone talks about. Ive had the car for about 6 months at 32k miles and it has been babied. No rough driving, flooring, and anything in that nature . Just yesterday I began to hear a noise so I have it some gas while it was in parked and I heard the noise . Warranty is long gone since it's been over 5 years. I've read around different opinions from others . What are your thoughts? Solutions? Thank you and much appreciated!

warranty for the waste gate is for 8 years or 82000 miles. Mine is an 07 also and have 80k miles so I have 2k miles left before my warranty is up. I'm going to have BMW check on the turbos and wastegate on my next oil change in the next week or so. Mine rattles on a cold start but I think that's normal. But I also hear some rattling when I start moving from a stop light. I'm not sure if that's normal or not since a bunch of 335i's I've seen when i'm at a stop light I can hear their car rattle also when the light turns green and their car starts moving.

As previously mentioned. It's extended warranty to I think 82K or 120K I can't remember which. You had me when you talked about rough driving. Why have the car if you don't open it up a little, every now and again. Nobodies perfect, plus the aggressive driving doesn't contribute to the wastegate issue, at least to my knowledge. Take it to a dealer, get a loaner, wait a week or so and all will be right. Good Luck!

Thank you. I gave bmw a call yesterday and they said my turbos are still under warranty but the only way they will replace them is when they fail.

The extended warranty is on the wastegates, not the turbos but they get placed together. If your wastegates are rattling (a common failure mode), they will replace the turbos.

You know what he means..

That's ridiculous, it sad car companies are too big to just do what's right; Just get the repair out of the way, so no more unnecessary damage is done. Poor luck, I guess just wait until the time comes and go back to them.
