  1. So I got my car back today. A fair bit of hassle as my car had no recall listed and had EGR done 18 months ago. I was pushing for full cost cover from BMW due to recent press release. In the end I agreed to pay for the labour if they covered the part. So cost me €170. Didn't want to push it anymore as I was without my car since Tuesday until picking it up an hour ago, and needed the car urgently for today/Christmas.
  2. So never got the call to say if Goodwill request approved this morning as promised. Left messages and got no reply. So called and was continually on hold for 45 mins until I demanded to speak to someone else. Then told no response from BMW yet and that they will follow up in the morning. Particularly poor customer service and I'm starting to agree with those that are critical of BMW and their cars. I don't think I'll ever buy another to be honest.
  3. So dropped my car off this morning and was armed with the paperwork re press release and vin numbers. They said my car wasn't included as had already been replaced 2017 so I used the replaced with a faulty part again argument. Said no it would have been the new part and I showed the date of the press release October 2018. She said they might have to keep car overnight and request a good will repair from BMW. Roll on 2.30pm today and I get a call saying I was right its the EGR and needs replacement and they are preparing the paperwork for good will, and ordering the part. I asked how likely is it to be approved and I was told cant see any reason it wouldn't be! So fingers crossed until tomorrow.
  4. I think this is the range that my car falls under but Im not sure: WBA5L32090D788200 to WBA5L32080G540082 From where to you start the match from the WBA the 32090 or the D7?
  5. Cheers pretty sure my valve is choking on sludge build up. So want that gone asap. If it was replaced as a result of cooler recall even better.
  6. Also would like to know if they will just inspect/replace the cooler and not look at the actual valve itself?
  7. Greatly appreciate your keeping us up to date so we have this info on stepping into the dealers den
  8. So I'm a bit confused on this one. My car is a 2014 F11 B47 2.0D. I queried the recall and was told it's had the cooler replaced a couple years back. I'm having egr issues at the moment. Is this a new recall again on the egr? The car is booked in with BMW here in Ireland to look at my issues but they advise there is no recall outstanding on my car. Any advice would be greatly appreciated before the car goes in. Is this the second egr related recall? Am I entitled to it foc?
  9. Ive been busy lately and not keeping up on the thread. Just wondering if you guys knew about this? https://www.bmw.co.uk/landingpages/bmw-vehicle-recalls#gref
  10. Ok cheers Matthew. Ill do that and see how it goes.
  11. Plugged in the Carly adapter and got a slew of codes. Not sure how recent they are. A lot to do with swirl flaps too open, too closed, maf etc Anyone an idea? Delete codes and see what comes back?
  12. I'm in Ireland and not sure we have that here. But I think i put a few liters of some other snake oil in it recently. I ran the tank lowish a couple of times recently which is what has me thinking possibly filter! Are the B47 not a disaster for intake valve and egr carbon build up? NB: Car already had the EGR Cooler recall done
