....purchased a new 2011 e92 M3 and received the "Increased Emissions" warning after only two day of ownership. The first time I brought it in, the techs ran through the suggested motions and thought they resolved the issue by connecting a loose hose by the secondary air pump. The second time the warning came on, two days later the techs got with BMW of NA for next tier support. This time around they say somehow a piece of the air filter broke off and got stuck in one of the check valves on the pump. So a check valve along with the air filter will be replaced and hopefully I won't see this problem again. Considering going with a K&N replacement filter to ensure the stock filter doesn't break apart again, but we'll see.
