Brake line recall

This sounds like new news to me:

DETROIT -- BMW AG will recall 84,000 X5 SUVs to fix a possible brake fluid leak, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Thursday.

NHTSA said the front brake line on X5s built between August 1999 and April 2002 could come loose, eventually causing a brake hose to rub against the tire and leak.

Greetings and thanks for the information. I have an x5 e53 4.8i which has very poor brakes and I would like to have a closer look at the piping now that you mentioned there is a recall. Would you have the recall number by any chance
