    Recall

    I went for a test ride today and on the way back noticed a check light and "Oil" flashing. Salesguy says there is a known recall for an oil sensor.
    Just sharing in case this is news.

    I donÔÇÖt think it was a recall but a service bulletin. The link should takey you to the NHTSA site and you can search service bulletins using the ID number to find the full service bulletin and models it covers.

    http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchNHTSAID : NHTSA ID Number: 10049679

    Service Bulletin No.: SIB-12-18-12 Component(s): ELECTRICAL SYSTEM , ENGINE

    SUMMARY:
    BMW: IF BSD COMMUNICATION IS DISRUPTED, OIL LEVEL SENSOR DATA IS NO LONGER RECEIVED BY DME. BSD COMMUNICATION FAULT(S), AFTER REPAIRS ARE SHORTLY SET, REQUIRES REMOVAL OF IGNITION HARNESS FROM CYLINDER HEAD COVER. ALL MODELS. NO MODEL YEARS LISTED. *PE
    Pass the mustard and UP THE REVOLUTION!
