Software Issues Recall

Recommended Posts

So BMW sold 2m BMW cars (excluding  Mini, RollsRoyce and Motorad) in 2016 and has around 4% growth Year on Year average. Over the 6 years this recall covers and of which 11700 cars are affected,  I get to around 11m cars built which means this recall represents 0.001% of the total. Hardly an emission scandal for those who may jump on all over this.  

 

Dave, the smallest engine in the X5/X6 is the 25d version of the 2.0l engine which is also available in the new 5 so it could affect those too.

Ouch, that's going to hurt company car drivers, wonder if it will push up private vehicle road tax too. 

And stopping m3 production - last chance purchase!?

Its just someone woke up with a conscious and decided to fess up before being shot at dawn no doubt.

 

BMW won't be the only ones doing that I'm quite sure...

Yet is this a coincidence that the volume seller is the one most affected (had to be adjusted)...[insert cynical emoji]

Not really - the goalposts have been moved from NEDC to a more realistic WLTP.

 

BMW are just ahead of the game in re-stating to the new test.

 

At least they’re not cheating like others.

 

I’m sure it won’t stop people from trying to claim compo though.
