I just had this happen to my 09'. Took it to the dealership yesterday because they said they have to replace the entire unit. I was like really. The guy I take it to also has an M3; so didn't think he was BS'n me. To my surprise, their mechanic said BMW NA makes them replace not only the defective unit, but the other as well. Something about corossion around the seals or something. So, my issue was with the rear passenger side tail light receiving the malfunction notification. They are also replacing the rear driver side tail unit. What a waste. Under warranty so I could care less, but still. Wow!
