I had a turbo failure at 13k miles or so.. had both replaced and went back to only lower downpipes and have had no issues since.

Wanted to add this for everyone and this seemed like the best thread. I noticed a rattle on cold start and took it in to the dealer. It was confirmed to be wastegate rattle, and they are replacing both turbos.

My car is a 2018 red sport with 16k miles, just catback.

5-7sec mark of this video you can hear it:

**** this is scary, I think I have the same rattle. Did they give you any trouble because of the CBE?

Nope, should be totally fine with catback. I've read there isn't too much push back on turbo replacement since it's relatively common (and also gives the shop a full days job). To that end I'm not even positive they heard the sound, usually only did it on cold start and I got the message they were replacing the turbos like an hour after I dropped it off.

Did you show them this video? I'll make one of my cold start to see how it compares.

Yeah I did send it to their service department just in case. Timing wise I think they approved the work before even receiving it lol

Will do. I'm going to have them do an oil change as well. I was surprised this wouldn't be a required step, I figured they would drain all fluids and need to take the engine out but was told no. If anyone has any dealer provided feedback on that from their turbo swaps please let me know

I haven't paid super close attention to turbo swaps posted here, but I was under the impression the engine had to come out.

So of course they do take the engine out, but apparently only need to drain the coolant not oil. So I did an oil change anyway, and installed intakes (why not engine was already out). Car felt good on the drive home so thinking all is well now

They had the car since Monday and parts came in Tuesday night. I think they started Wednesday and wrapped it up this morning, I got the completion notice around 1pm. My slip doesn't have labor hours specified but I read in some other forum posts that it was an ~8 hour job so they might be able to squeeze it into a single day.

The sound my q60 was making. As of now, it's at the dealer. I'm still waiting on what there going to do. The last thing I heard from them was that they bought something for the turbo? The lady wasn't specific, so I have to wait untill tomorrow when there open to see what they order.
