Well, I have had all the stuff done now except for the following:

SI B18 04 12 (Replace SCR Metering Unit).
I was told by one dealer a few months ago that this was bundled with/superseded by B18 05 12. However, there was no SCR Metering Unit part replaced when they did my SI B18 05 12. When I had SI B13 04 12 (Program Control Unit) done a couple of weeks ago, I asked them (this is a different dealer) about the SCR Metering Unit one, and they told me the same thing but used different words, vague ones. They said something to the effect "over the long run BMW is responsible for that item and so don't worry about it." But I am still inclined to send a love note to BMWNA and ask the question. Just haven't done it mainly because of lack of energy and not knowing the correct party to direct it to.

I have had no issues with anything on these recalls yet. No change in MPG, no change in zoom, no change in gear shifts, nada.
Quaife LSD w/VAC finned diff cover, M3 Rear SF Bushings, M3 sways & M3 OEM Susp Front/Rear Component Kits (w/o strut brace), GC Caster/Camber Plates, Íhlins R&T coilovers, Goodrich SS brake lines, non-staggered APEX ARC-8 18" wheels with Michelin PSS.
