I got the service engine light and P20EE code over the weekend, which may mean the NOx cats are not up to snuff. I'm taking the car in on Friday, so I will keep you all posted.

Let us know if the software update reduces your power. Thanks for being the guinea pig!

I'm from california and it says voluntary on mine although I'm debating on getting it. I think it'll help with my mpg as my tail pipes are pretty black and its saying 26.7mpg, which is sort of low comparing the results on this forum. I already had to get reflashed once for a recall and before that I had atleast 28mpg.

I just recently had to get my car smogged and it was different process than most times I had to get smog. Smog guy didnt plug anything in or put it on a dyno. All he did was open up a book and check something under the hood and that was it.

I took my car for service two days ago and they informed me about the recall. So I just got a call from my service rep, and he told me they the car is ready, that they had to change the catalytic converter as part of the work. My car has less than 12k on it!! Still under warranty, he told me the part cost $1,840.00!! So glad I dont have to pay. I will pick the car up tomorrow morning and will report on how it drives after the reflash.

It's hilarious man. I emailed the Assistant Service Manager to a BMW dealership here in Toronto about 5 days ago with a link to this news and asked him if would affect us in Canada. No response.

Two days later I emailed the Fixed Operations Manager to said dealership with a similar email. No response.

I don't how similar Canadian pollution regs are with the U.S. regs; presumably, they are very similar - so - I would think you're going to get the recall. It's a shame that the dealer reps don't feel the need to respond, if even to say they don't know. I wonder what would happen if you showed up in person and asked the question. By the way, ever hear back from the supplier of the additive we were discussing?

Did the rep say the cat converter was replaced as part of the recall campaign? Or was it because of another unrelated issue?

I never heard back dude. Maybe you can try emailing them too?

It is pretty sad about the dealership but maybe it is for legal issues that they don't reply.

Because of the recall. I was really surprised, like I said my car has a little over 11k miles on it. Tails were really clean, no smoke or any indications of anything being wrong. We will see how it rides tomorrow.

My 335d was in the shop Monday and Tuesday for other reasons and I tried to have them do the recall as well. They had to order the EGR valve, and said the entire car would be getting a software update. They are suppose to call me when the part comes in. I wonder if they'll swap my cat converter too.

I took my car in yesterday. As I suspected, my car already has the latest EGR valve that's part of this recall - reference this thread from back in the fall when I had to have my EGR valve replaced http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=577143.

However, they still need to replace a valve. I couldn't quite make out what the SA said over the phone but I think it's the urea metering valve. Hopefully I'll have the car back before long, and hopefully there won't be any negative ramifications.

Does anyone else knows what I am talking about? Maybe my cat was just bad. Like I said car is running well, hopefuly no more issues.

Just got mine in the mail.

It's voluntary. NYS also doesn't check Diesels for emissions during inspection....

Thanks for the update. I know exactly what you mean by the engine breaking. Does the car seem any faster or louder / quieter? Anything else you notice that's different? Enquiring minds want to know.
