Mein Auto: 1996 BMW 730iL
Yeah pretty common thing it seems. It's generally related to the charcoal canister, which was actually redesigned on 3/97 and later models to try and avoid this particular issue. What specific month model is your car? It's possible yours was built just prior to this change coming into effect (remember there's a difference between the PRODUCTION date and build date - my car is a 1996 build but production was in 95 for my motor, if I've got that right).

Have a read here, it's a well known issue;

No recalls issued by BMW that I'm aware of!
