Default Help decoding repair history

Hi everyone,

After 3+ years I'm finally back and ready to buy me an M3. I went to the BMW dealership and they provided me with a repair history print out. No surprise the people working there had no clue what some of the services were.

Can anyone help figure me out with what these mean?

Car: 2003 BMW E46 M3 6Spd

Defect Code: 85990088MP 1200 MI SERV -M5, Z8, S54B32 M3
Defect Code: 0011940100 E46 S54 Replacing connecting rod bearing shells and connecting rod bolts if necessary
Defect Code: 0061750100 B610503 Recall Replace General Module
Defect Code: 0012230200 B121106 Recall Programming DME control module (OBD communication)

Thank you,
Cap

Yep, shells, bearings, bolts. Would be nice if they could tell you when this occurred. The e46 m3 never gets old to me!

Not a recall, but yes, that is what that means. You’re missing the mileages. Rod bearings are not one and done. Every 60-120k miles they are due (oil reports may +\- that).
