Waste gate rattle confirmed - being fobbed off!

Postby Deeks83 » 03 Oct 2017, 21:49

I know this is well documented in the n54 engines but has anyone had the same issue in an n13?

BMW keep telling me it is an ‘acoustic flaw’ and ‘characteristic’ of the engine. I disagree. It sounds like s**t!!

Have written a strongly worded letter to BMW HQ on the advice of Citizens Advice Bureau.

If anyone has found a DIY solution to this for the 116i n13 engine or had any sense out of BMW I would love to know!
