I think the funny thing about all of this is that BMW issues a recall after 3 years of complaints with absolutely no clear cut solution. What are they going to do? Reinstall older, re-manufactured pumps and detune the cars software?
Thanks BMW for making my $50K car slower and giving me an old, used car part (I hope ABC mentions this pathetic solution tonight). Unfortunately, this problem continues with the newer N55 engines (albeit maybe not with the same frequency) and there is absolutely no mention of that in this story. I had my 335i N55 fuel pump fail at 1500 miles on the odometer with absolutely the same symptoms. If anyone has a POC at ABC and wants me to share my story with them, I will gladly do so, PM me their contact info. This makes BMW look really sh**ty to anyone that knows the full story.
At least, Kudos to ABC for tackling this issue and at least bringing it to a national spotlight!
