I had no idea about this security flaw. BMW have my details on record and routinely email me servicing and sales offers - but no mention of this security fix they are now apparently offering ; according to the BBC Watchdog page:

It had been off the road for the past week waiting for a fuel pump repair....Cost me 400 . Only got the car back yesterday - wish they had nicked it before the repair!!
I dont suspect the repair place -been using them for years - for my E46 too...
I don't think the security flaw affected 2006 model year cars & before
