Nothing yet, but I am still in contact with BMW NA in regards to this. I'll keep posted on the final outcome.

I ended up having three injectors replaced and had to pay out of pocket $1200. I still need to eventually have the other three done. My advice if you must pay is to buy all of the parts on your own and do not pay dealer prices for them. I, mistakenly, paid more than double for the parts getting them at my local dealer. I would highly suggest The labor, even at the dealer, is actually not too bad. If you buy the parts and get the labor done at an indy, you could probably sneak away with a relatively inexpensive bill.

My question is, does it appear that my car would qualify under this recall? If so, would the FIs have to fail for BMW to replace them, or can I just bring the car in and request them to be changed under the recall?
Call your local dealer, or BMW NA, and ask them to run the last seven digits of your VIN for active recall campaigns. If the fuel injectors come up, they'll replace them immediately, even if they are not experiencing failure.
