BMW Letter Extending Warranty on Ignition Coils

I just got a letter from BMW that points out potential problems with Bremi ignition coils on the 01, 02, and 03 cars. They have extended the warranty on the ignition coils to 8 years, unlimited mileage.

The letter states it is likely to be a problem only on a "small percentage" of the vehicles. It will cause a Service Engein Soon light and possibly rough running.

Warranty is fully transferable to other owners.

If you bought your car used and haven't gotten a letter, you might want to contact BMW NA and get your name and address attached to the VIN.
