BMW needs to spell out in detail what they mean by the following:

"Based on the individual service history of the vehicle, the action will entail replacement of the high-pressure fuel pump and/or a software update."

They say only 40,000 out of 130,000 will require new pumps. I had my HPFP replaced with the 881 version when they "announced" their first voluntary recall.

My warranty just expired and I took it in just days before expiration and then again on my last day of the warranty period and had the High Pressure Pipe and the Inlet pipe replaced since I had a major fuel leak. I now think the dealership improperly installed my HPFP which then led to the leak. I complained several times that I noticed strong fuel smells at times and was told each time not to worry because these cars "run rich".

I would like to see BMW deal with this issue once and for all, but I am not holding my breath.
