Also the battery cable recall but no biggie. If you bought it from a dealer they should have records if it's been done or call you local dealer and give them your VIN to see if that work has been performed and if your is listed as being one of the cars needing the vanos bolt work performed also. Other than that, you have the last e90 to be produced and believe most of the kinks were worked out by that MY. Enjoy the car and enjoy the site.

Welcome!

What we know now so far (mid-July update), based on evidence provided on Bimmerfest E90 forums by owners:

N51: BMW NA lady says "Yes, definitely" (but has no VIN information or affected production date range information), but no owners on bimmerfest have gotten a letter yet.
N52: Owner of 328i produced 5/2010 (and a 3/2011 South African build) has gotten recall letter
N53: We know nothing
N54: We know nothing
N55: Owners of 335i produced between 4/2010 and 5/2011 have gotten recall letters; additionally one 5/2011 build failed recently (no letter received), and repair is still in progress.

sounds a lot like my latest toy: a space grey 2011 e91 328i xdrive with 6mt - picked it up this month with almost 50k miles.

haven't had any problems since I got it, although I did get a low battery warning the other day. hope that's from running errands and updating the map, and not a sign of anything else.
