The 09's do have the new cylinder head already in place. You can confirm on that they come with the updated cylinder head so these do not have the problem.

Mine is problem free after a month and running stronger than the day I brought it home from the dealer
I haven't had a new cylinder head yet. Just the bleed procedure done so far.
If when I get back from my holidays the dealer doesn't open a PuMA or the
PuMA is rejected I don't know how I will proceed. I will probably find another
dealer who can assess my car and the noise and hope for the best. If I knew
for sure a dealer out there was going to do the replacement for me, I would
just drive to it no matter how far it was. I just know my car sounds like a
diesel and that's not normal. But we'll see...
