Got A Recall Letter from BMWNA

I want to verify this is the same old HPFP recall letter.

It's dated February 2011 (I thought a letter was sent out much earlier).

BMW Voluntary Emissions Recall Campaign
n54 High-Pressure Fuel Pump
Campaign NUmber: 10EA02

Blah, blah, blah...BMW will repair your vehicle free of charge.

The reason I created this thread was because I:

1) Have already had my HPFP replaced early last year (maybe February 2010). Thus, I have the software from that time (I guess). Do I need to take action?
2) I have Dinan S2 and my car has run perfectly since flash and HPFP replacement.

Should I still take in in despite my perfectly running car? I've read the new software update makes your car even slower and I'm not sure how the "fix" is Dinan compatible/non-compatible.

Advice?

Cliffs: 2010 335i E92, M6, Dinan S2, 1 HPFP replaced early last year, should I go in for warranty work (HPFP Recall) on a Dinan S2 vehicle running perfectly?

I say if it's not broke don't "fix" it...the pump is still under warranty even if you don't have this recall performed right now

They need to change the hpfp again and reprogram again.

so you might need the dinan flash again.

Can they reprogram the Dinan flash over the new software?

Anyone with Dinan do this yet?

I got the 446 pump recall and the dealer reloaded the Dinan Software without issue.

I went in this past week to get a door handle replaced, and they said I needed to replace my hpfp, so I got that done too

I just did this and they installed the 446 pump and reflashed my Dinan.

I honestly don't feel any difference in performance, but I guess I got a new HPFP out of it (Already replaced it once at like 2,000 miles).

Dinan S2 was loaded back.

I still think I want to get a boost gauge since I think I've gotten used to the power increase and want to make sure it's not placebo. When I first got S2, I was blown away...now, it just feels quick.
