Is that asseveration correct? What I understood is that the Turbos and the wastegates are the same part number.
Yes, that is correct. In order to replace the WG's you have to replace the entire turbocharger since the WG's are integrated into the turbos.
I think this is BMW legal-ese... since they will not replace a turbo for say a leaking or worn shaft/turbine(after the power train warranty is up). But they will replace them for a rattling loose WG's.
