My SA told me that since I have a SULEV (M56), pumps and valves and other parts serving the emissions are covered by an extended warranty and could be replaced for free. As my luck would have it, it was the relay switch that was bad and so they charged me for the electrical part and minimal labor to fix it.

Regardless, my dashboard now only shows the necessary alerts and readouts, and for that I am happy.
Good deal. I think it's a good idea for anyone who thinks that they're "out of warranty" to look over their emissions warranty. Quite a few emissions-related issues have extended coverage and I believe California has even stricter warranty coverage. The BMW warranty booklet has all the details.
