I would recommend going to a BMW specialist, and yeah with the symptoms that you have mentioned I would expect the turbo to let go. I have seen it a few times on that particular model. I would also recommend getting the timing looked at as they are also very common for failure just to keep up with maintenance. it is good that you do have full-service history since with regular service to these particular models oil dilution and component failure is very common, unfortunately. So with regular servicing and general maintenance, you can extend the lift quite dramatically.
