N55 54,000km New Turbo

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi everyone,

I pickedup my 2011 135i with 44,000KM from BMW In Markham. It is CPO until 2017 160,000KM.

When i picked it up, i noticed a metal noise coming from the car but was told its the exhaust valve. Fair enough.

After listening carefully, and especially when the RPM was dropping when i depressed the clutch, the noise was apparant. I changed to BMW PE aswell, so no valve to mask the noise.

I have 53,000KM and took it to Pfaff BMW to have it looked at. They initially said it was the wastegate and did additional testing. They replaced the wastegate and i picked it up a day later, to find the noise still there. Since the noise was only there 20-30% of the time, i wasn't as irritated as i would have been, as the noise came and went.

They called me a few days later and said BMW Canada has authorized a new turbo and i should be able to get it this Thursday or Friday ( i dropped it off Monday Sep 14).

Just wanted to share my experience and see if anyone has had any wastegates go on the N55.

After purchasing the vehicle i saw the service history. Has only been driven 10,000KM per year and 1 oil change per year. Maybe thats why it is premature? was hoping the low mileage would be a good thing!

10K on full synthetic should be OK. Don't think that's the issue, might just be bad luck good thing you're covered on warranty tho!

10k km on synthetic is fine in the sense that the oil won't break down in 10k, but it might still collect a lot of crap. I do about every 8k km. But, that sounds fortunate that you could get it replaced. I though the twin scroll turbos were super reliable though :\
