I just got off the phone with my SA and he informed me that the recall for "defect code 0061130300***8207;" is to fix the vibration problem. I don't how true this is but i'm curious to find out so if you could, please contact your SA and schedule a service appointment for them to fix that recall...which is basically a reprogramming of the car. As you know BMW is more electronics than mechanical so this software update/reprogram MAY fix the vibration problem indeed.

For what it's worth, i recommend you call another dealership (not the one you're currently dealing with...i've lost faith in them already) and enquire about any recall campaign for your F01 (gve then your VIN). There should be atleast two (that i'm aware of); one for the drive belt guard cover and one for defect code 0061130300***8207;.

My SA also told me that the reprogramming/software for my car has being crashing all day (which is typical) and they're hoping it'll install/reprogram successfully by Monday. I have a nice X5 loaner without any company logo or courtesy markings on it so i'm going to enjoy that for the weekend.

Incase anyone is interested, i'm getting the latest Navigation map updates (6 disk total according to my SA) and the the Navigation OS update loaded for $170. Not bad compare to when i use to buy NavTeq map updates for $199.
