Waste gate recall 335i

Howdy howdy,

I'm poking around on here to try and arm myself with some information before I bring my car to the dealer for some rattling that's getting on my last nerve. The car has had them gates replaced under recall however when I called Bmw to ask if they will honor the once replaced parts they tell me that no information can be given until I bring the car in to have it looked over. Figuring this was a dealers sales ploy I called three other local dealers and got the same story. I'm wondering if anyone has had a similar issue and had them replaced again by honored recall.

Symptoms are...

1- Cold startups sound like tin foil bunched up in a blender on low speed until the car warms up making a noticeable difference in idle sound.

2- I can drive the car 3 miles or 100 miles, if I shut it off and jump back in it while its still warm it makes the same type of rattle noise when I let my for up off the gAs peddle when shifting gears, almost like a blowoff valve with the flu however always hushes up after third gear.

3- Makes the noise randomly when driving but very faint.

It's a bit embarrassing having such an attractive automobile that sounds like a Le Car on crack when you start it so I'd like to resolve it ASAP.
