Arrow BMW Emissions Recall to Reprogram OBD on 2000-2004 M5, M3, Z8, and MCoupe

From my BMWCCA Chapter's website: http://forum.nccbmwcca.org/showthread.php?t=2866

BMW has a voluntary emissions recall campaign underway for certain 6 & 8 cylinder 2000-2004 model year M coupes, M3s, Z8s, and M5s. Voluntary recall notices have been mailed to current owners on file with BMW under Campaign No. 06E-A03. (If you haven't received a notice, perhaps because you are not the original owner, you can still schedule a recall repair by contacting any authorized BMW Service Center or visit the BMW North America website at www.bmwusa.com or call BMW North America Customer Relations at 800.831.1117).

According to the BMW notice, these vehicles may not be able to pass a state emission inspection "due to an OBD communication problem with certain scan tools used at the inspection stations." The OBD is the onboard emissions diagnostic device or computer.

Particularly if you live in MD, or in another state with mandatory emissions testing, you can get this repaired free of charge for parts and labor at an Authorized BMW repair center (reprogramming may take up to two hours, depending on the model). The good news is that the OBD is among 3 specified major emission control components (along with the catalytic converter and electronic emissions control unit or ECU) that is covered for the first 8 years or 80,000 miles of vehicle use on 1995 and newer vehicles.

Hopefully this is not a SECOND emissions recall. I did it last year with my '04 M3. I believe in the summertime? Anyhow, I think it is the same recall. But you are right, the next time you take your M-car into BMW service, have them check your VIN number against any recalls or campaign.

Thanks for the the reminder!
