Another E92 Recall

Anyone else had a recall for faulty "Pulse Generators" on their e92?

They say problems include erratic engine behavior and loss of power if not replaced.

My wife's E92 is a 07 320i

This is the second one in two months, the first was for injectors.

Had to laugh a the "Quality Enhancement" Subject Line

I've not heard anything yet, is this affecting all e92's?

I assume that the pulse generators are the Hall-effect cam sensors. (i.e. the same thing as your recent recall).
