Well, it alludes to those receiving letters scheduling appointments for inspection. What this inspection entails, we do not know. However, given the impending legislation from BMW, I do see that standardizing this procedure could result in more fuel pumps being replaced than what has become a typical "updated software, symptoms erased" followed by an inevitable failure.
You seem hung up on this number of pumps getting replaced vs. number of software updates vs. number of potentially affected. These are not hard numbers. When the recall is issued, everyone with a car falling into the designated model and year will get a letter. Of these cars, BMW expects to have to take action on 130,000. Of these, it expects to replace 40,000 pumps. Sorry your previous "you're all missing teh point look at the numbers!" thread got deleted, but perhaps you should take the time to read, process, think about, and then post before calling a post out.
