Now in April I just had to bring in my car for service again (due to something unrelated: transfer case failure). This time I brought it to a different dealership. They now told me that the car also needs the injector check and hpfp replacement. So they checked all injectors but didn't find any needing replacement. They did put in a new hpfp (part # 170).

This raises the question: has BMW updated its database for what recall tasks need to be performed between February and April? Or did one of the two dealerships look up the recall info for my car incorrectly???
Yes, they rolled out the fuel pump and injector replacement over a period of time to manage supply of parts. I doubt it would be anything more complicated than production date or vin sort ascending.
