Most of the answers to your questions are in the article which is what Lincoln posted up. No downtime figure was provided as I am sure it will vary by dealer based on the availability of parts.

"BMW said certain emissions components, including the SCR catalyst, the DEF mixer and the EGR valve, may improperly overstate vehicle mileage, causing emissions standards to be exceeded and the illumination of the "Service Engine Soon" light.

BMW said the repair will require the inspection and replacement of one or more of the emissions components and the reprogramming of the vehicle's engine control unit."
