Dear God in Heaven please be the bearings....
....though it's too late for me.

If it's just 08's though, then it sounds LIKELY that they just made the idle control valve a full-blown recall rather than just a TSB item though.

And if it's not just 08's then DCT? Which is great for you guys.

I haven't heard anything for my '08 and don't see any recall notice in a quick search on the internet. Anyone else hear anything?

hmmmm, I have an 09 and the dealer just setup an appointment for "routine maintenance covered under your warranty at no charge to you" .. Did BMW start doing this recently or something? (they sent me an email)

Is my car's info being sent through BMW assist and did they detect something? I'm in between service intervals right now so I have no clue what this is about...I'm going in tomorrow to speak with them.

If there was a recall it'd be public by now. Could be a TSB (or SIB). Recalls are only issued on safety issues where lives are at risk. I haven't seen any issue on M3s that qualify as such. But yes, I'd like my idle valve replaced for sure .

This is not just for 08's, this is for all models as I have an 09. Had some issues with the flash, the Navi is significantly different and had some issues with RPM's and such. RPM's were in the range of 1500 at idle. It is fixed now, stealership claims they did nothing....little fishy, but ok.

HD radio is all funky now, fading in and out as it was when i took delivery of car back from ED.

SI B28 01 10
Double-clutch Transmission with Drivelogic
September 2010
Technical Service

PERFORM THE PROCEDURE OUTLINED IN THIS SERVICE INFORMATION ON ALL AFFECTED VEHICLES THE NEXT TIME THEY ARE IN THE SHOP FOR MAINTENANCE OR REPAIRS AND PRIOR TO RETAIL DELIVERY.

SUBJECT
Service Action: Program Control Units (DCT)

MODEL
E82, E88, E89, E90, E92, E93 vehicles with DCT transmission produced from 1/08/2008 to 8/31/2010

SITUATION
Due to errors in the diagnostic software of the DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) module, the "Freeze frame data" of the DCT memory can not be read out when using aftermarket scan tools.

CAUSE
DCT software error

AFFECTED VEHICLES
This Service Action involves E90, E92, E93 M3 vehicles with the S65 engine and DCT transmission and E82, E88, E89, E92, E93 vehicles with N54/N54T engine and DCT transmission which were produced from 01/08/2008 up to 08/31/2010.

In order to determine whether a specific vehicle has had this Service Action completed or is affected by this Service Action, first check the B-pillar label for code number 575. If code number 575 has been punched out, the campaign has already been performed. If code number 575 has not been punched out, it will be necessary to utilize the "Service Menu" of DCSnet (Dealer Communication System) or the Key Reader. Based on the response of the system, either proceed with the corrective action or take no further action.

PROCEDURE
Program the vehicle using ISTA/P 2.39.0 or a more recent version.
E8x/E9x – Integration level (new): E89x-10-09-501 or higher.
Note that ISTA/P will automatically reprogram and code all programmable control modules that do not have the latest software.
For information on programming and coding with ISTA/P, refer to Centernet / Aftersales Portal / Service / Workshop Technology / Vehicle Programming.
