So far looks like its only 2005's. I donít have the note in front of me but the short story is a chip has to be reprogrammed to fix an emissions issue.

I just had mine in for the 15k service last month and the Rep said there was a recall to do a reprogram for the oxygen sensor which they did while I was there. Since then I've been getting better gas mileage. Up from 15.5-16 to 17/City. Works for ME! :thumbup:

Off topic, but my X3 just passed the MD emissions today. Lol they just plugged it their comp into the OBD and I was out in 2 minutes :D

Well contacted the dealer was told to expect to be without the vehicle for at least a day, and they only fix a couple of these a day. The earliest appointment is mid April oh well. It is what it is.
