It would be 10 years from the service in date.

I've owned my car for about 18 months. In that time, I've put 13,000 miles on it. Just hit 126,000 total ont he car. I've gotten p0420 two times. The previous owner (one of my good friends) had the car from 80-113, and he said he never got the codes. He did alert me of the recall when I bought the car. The car just got a new recall (passenger airbag), and I will have them perform the reprogramming while I have it in there. Ironic they would recall a car that is that old (03/02). i've read into the reprograming, and I didn't see much reason to do the recall if I didn't have the codes popping up to much. I've had an OBD II sensor because of my old truck, and it has come in handy a couple of times with the ///M. I figure I might as well get all this taken care of while it's in the shop for the air bag which I do feel is somewhat important. Although..... it did make this far without any issues.

Just got this the light and I'm pretty sure the previous owner didn't get the DME flashed with the update. How much are dealers charging for this these days? My car is an 03 with a November 2002 build, so I'm clearly out of warranty unfortunately.

If your car truly didn't have the recall performed, they'll do it free. That's legally required of them

^^Sweet! Thanks. I'll have to check under the hood in the morning to verify if there is a campaign number or not.

Went to East Bay BMW today and my car has not had the campaign completed, so I have an appointment next week. My service manager said it would be free. Perfect.

Funny story. SES light popped up, even when cleared it would return the same code for bad cats... Called BMW of Annapolis. They informed me that they would fix it for free. Set my appointment and left my car there, a happy man. An hour before i'm supposed to get the car back i get call from them.

"Hey, Mr. Redmon. We cant seem to connect to your car. The computer just wont talk back to the scanner. We are looking at about 500 dollars in labor to get this done and connected"

I pretty much told them to have my fuking car ready and out front in an hour. Dont spend another millisecond on the car. She said "The techs wont be back for a while. They went to lunch. It will be ready in two hours." Finally get my car. Sugar packet torn up laying under my passenger seat. Motherfuker got lunch in my car.

Funny.....no light though. Thought they couldn't get connection?

Here we are 6500 miles later and no light. Connects to my OBD2 scanners just fine. BMW of annapolis much like most dealerships are crooks at their finest.

Default New Emissions Recall - COMBINED THREAD - DO NOT START A NEW ONE!

I need of a little help here. By the numbering is it safe to say that recall 08E -A03 came out in 2008-2009? My local dealer says my car was updated with the recall in 2007? Any way that's possible?

Default Re: New Emissions Recall - COMBINED THREAD - DO NOT START A NEW ONE!

So i called BMWUSA and my nearest dealership, they said my BMW has no recalls yet a SES has illuminated. Is the Recall for all BMW M3's 2003-2006? or just specific ones?
