So I got my 02/03 letter today. Is this worth having done? I have a bone stock 2003 with 41k miles.

Let us know if this software update affects performance in any way.

I got a letter in the mail today too. Surprisingly i got an ses light for bank 1 cat a few weeks ago. Ever since i had it turned off, the light has not returned.

These cats are way too sensitive. I found that 9 times out of 10 a cat is good even though the SES light indicates otherwise.

The campaign number is 08E-A03 and it's for all 2003-2006 BMW M3's.

Got the same letter today. Hmm...thought I already got the update a few years ago but I guess this must be a "newer" update.

I got my letter today 02-03 and it indicates an extended warranty (catalytic coverters) for 10 years unlimited miles.

EDIT: Funny I did just get the P0430 code on Bank 2 on Friday. I cleared it Saturday and it hasn't come back yet. Hopefully after the recall I won't see the little yellow light again.
