Mein Auto: 'BMW 335d, Audi A3
Recall Letter 11E-A03

I just got the recall notice - dated May 2012. It's Labelled "SCR Catylist, EGR Valve &/or DEF Mixer and ECU Software Flash"

Per the letter - BMW has determined that these parts may not be "robust enough" and after time may result in excessive NOx emissions along with illumination of SES Lamp.
It says that if the repair is not done the vehicle might fail an emission test. And in California it is mandatory.

They'll replace parts - if required. The repair will take one day.
