Seems like it's just more of the same since depending on service history, a pump may be replaced or a car will just get the software update...

Yes, that is what it sounds like, but the article mentions that BMW produced a properly working fuel pump in March. I guess we will see when people take in their cars for this voluntary recall.

BMW admitted to ABC News that it wasn't until March of this year, four years after these cars were introduced, that it finally found a fix: a properly working fuel pump. "We were making changes but we also had to see and make sure that they were actually reliable in the field," said Baloga.
