As memtioned above, took the car in the 3rd time for dreaded belt squeal. Dealer had it ready to go with the aftermarket Korean belt installed 24 hours later, but asked if they could keep it one more night to make sure there was no issue at start-up the next day - no problem! Picked the car up yesterday and so far so good!
While at the dealer I complained of brake pulsing so the dealer also REPLACED my front rotors and brake pads despite having another 22k mi to go (according to computer) on the existing pads.
I also complained about the mpg decrease since having the emissions recall performed (egr replacement and repgoram) and the SA everything appeared to be operating within in spec, but that they will document the problem and that perhaps BMW will investigate if they receive enough complaints - so for everyone else COMPLAIN if you are seeing similar results since having the EGR work performed. It sucks that I am now getting high teens mpg city.
