From consumeraffairs.com:
Quote:
According to the suit, BMW tried to remedy an "undisclosed defect" with the cars by installing an updated version of its so-called "Engine Control Unit" (ECU) software. The defect allegedly originated in the cars' turbochargers, fuel pumps, gas waste mechanisms, and/or turbo software.
Here's the link to the whole thing: consumeraffairs.com's report

MWerks.com's small take on it


Sorry if its a Tonymac, but thought people with the N54-equipped cars could used this info.

My service actually warned about this one and said he didn't think I really wanted to go there.

Did anyone else catch the "RPM (revelations per minute)" in the article? Thanks for clarifying that one.
