Recall on X1 - Emission Module Problem

Hi All,
Just got an recall letter from BMW today.
This has to do with the "Program Transmission Control Unit"
Campaign Number: ECR-B0001-11-002

The problem stated in there saids:
- The software release for the transmission control unit (TCU) contains error. If a fault in the transmission would occur, the TCU cannot illuminate the engine light, this is required per federal emission regulations.

BMW has offer to retrofit or update the TRU for Free of Charge.

This would applied to Canadian Spec X1 2.8i Xdrive.
Let me know if you also got this letter... for canadian fokes.

Was told last week that this fix screws up something else, so don't be in a hurry to take it in. Car in tomorrow to clean squeaking brakes and will report back.

Had to wait an extra day before picking up my new X1 at the end of October as according to the dealer "there was a recall which required them to do a new software download". Apparently this takes a few hours. Didn't say what the recall was about

Thanks DC - I received the letter yesterday as well, so I will wait to hear from you as to what other problems may crop up once the software fix is done.
