I'm in. What is involved?
Precedent has been set in the US.

Is there reason to believe that Canadian-bound N54 cars are built differently than the US ones, at least regarding the turbos/wastegates?

I have 127k on mine. Not sure if it was replaced before I got it, but it seems ok so far. I'd be in for the suit if I had issues.

Sign me up! I have massive turbo lag problems, and BMW doesn't not care to fix it.

im not sure if turbo lag is a result of bad wastegates.

also bmw usa and bmw canada are completely separate entities, that have absolutely no bearing on what each other does. also class action law is entirely different between the USA and canada, so comparing the two doesn't make any sense.

This isn't about comparing USA, Canada and their different policies regarding class action law. This is about the fact that our n54 vehicles are no different from the USA's and they should be warrantied the same. Before we know it, the factory warranty on new cars will be shortened compared to US vehicles just because we live in Canada. We already get shafted on extended warranties so that would be no different.

I think my turbos will need replacing soon. I have horrible/embarrassing wastegate rattle for the first 10 min after start up. The car still runs great though. I'm in.

I agree, i'm just reminding you that BMW canada and BMW usa have no relationship. Its like saying audi should do something because bmw did.

Had mine replaced under CPO because of the rattling. Was told that warranty was extended for the new turbos for another 2 years, can't remember number of KM.

New turbos sound exactly the same.

Will wait 1.5 years and go in for another fresh pair.

Edit - the rattling is not really that bad on mine....mostly noticeable when the car is cold. However they work perfectly and the car pulls very hard.
