Just got the letter and my car is affected.

Any recommendations on which dealership to go to in Sydney? I've only had the car for a couple of months, and never dealt with any of the dealers before.

Which of them has the lowest number of first year apprentices?

I was just advised that my car is NOT subject to the re-call based on my VIN # by my SA at Brisbane BMW , i Thought this was all 135 built between 2007 and 2011 ? My car is a 09 build delivered in 2010??

How can i be certain the SA is correct , is there a BMW Australia service phone number or contact ?

Not every car has the fault.

I received a letter in the mail from BMW Aus. asking me to take my car to any dealership for the fix.

I'd say if you did not get the letter and you want to make absolutely sure, call BMW Aus. Customer Service line and have your VIN ready. They should be able to check if your car is on the list or not.

Just got off the phone with BMW Aus. Looks like my 09 doesn't need the recall. Hmmm...

Was it in for service at the same time?

I was told they were not touching anything other than replacing the battery cable.

Just oil change and the battery cable.

I didn't think that they would reset everything. But it's all gone. Alpina TCU flash, digital speedo, disclaimer screen, spark plug service on CBS screen and etc

I wouldn't be happy
Would we have any recourse in a situation like this? If it's out of warranty perhaps you can demand that the dealer reinstate the coding since they have the ability to do that anyway, although, I doubt you would be able to do the same for the Alpina flash.

Just booked my March '09 in to Perth for the end of June. They said they can only do 10 a day because BMW Australia only gave them one tool.

I'd hate to know how many they have to do all up.. at each dealer.
