    Post BMW Voluntary Emissions Recall Campaign N54 High-Pressure Fuel Pump

    Got this in the mail a couple of days ago. Sorry about the poor iphone pics.
    I for one didn't know that the DMV would be asking for proof of correction. Might be old news but thought i would post it anyways.

    I got this as well...

    Was Mr 5's detective work ever conclusive regarding the pump he thought was "the solution pump"?

    Did not realize he found something like that, would like to know what happened with it. Try sending him a PM.

    Those bastards at my dealership asked for proof from me too, and they wouldn't give me a loaner because I'm not 21. What, do they expect me to walk to work?

    Anyway, there was an open recall on 335i's, but not 135i's, so I brought the paper back that BMW mailed me the next day and they finally took it......

    I wonder if BMW will still try to fix the problem by doing a software update FIRST?
    Or does this letter mean that they will change the pump and update software the first time around?

    I think this time it's hardware. They always try software first, whatever is cheapest. I'm really starting to dislike them.

    It's a hardware problem for certain. Software update conceals the defect in the fuel pump. If you look at the most recent SIB, you'll also know that now a code needs to be thrown for replacement. Guess what that software update does? That's right, kids...it won't throw a code now until it fails completely. No more codes thrown for failure symptoms.

    Typical BMW.

    For the DCT in the M3 to combat the shift lag they just upped the line pressure in the software. Doesn't resolve the hardware issues causing it but it was good enough for them to get around doing a recall.

    I have a feeling they won't be doing that too much longer.

    Yeah, they said there was nothing they could do about my high pressure fuel pump.

    They did try to sell me Viagra though.

    If anyone knows, I've been searching everywhere and can't find it, this guy posted up a exhaust recirculation idea, attaching the headers to the intake manifold. I CAN'T FIND THE THREAD ANYWHERE!!! Please post it, it is Epic.
