They say it doesn't effect post 2011 models, but the online vendors of these key programmers claim they still work on all new models, so we'll see. Brand new 1M coupes have been filmed being nicked and they are after the cut off.
I'm sure its a UK-only fix in the UK. They only dreamt it up after watchdog, so I'm sure its not being driven by BMW AG.
When there's a class action lawsuit in the US then well see BMW getting reamed over it and 'magic' up a proper fix (for the US only of course) just like N54 fuel pumps.
Just spoke to them, gave them the date of my car Sept 07 and they said"yep that is on the list" Will be called by BMW to book it into Scothall BMW Milton Keynes, for what its worth!
