PERFORM THE PROCEDURE OUTLINED IN THIS SERVICE INFORMATION ON ALL
AFFECTED VEHICLES THE NEXT TIME THEY ARE IN THE SHOP FOR MAINTENANCE
OR REPAIRS.

SUBJECT
Voluntary Emissions Recall Campaign 05E-A01: BREMI Ignition Coils Replacement

MODEL
E46 with M54/M56 from 09/02 up to 12/04

E39 with M54 from 09/02 up to 07/03

E53 (X5) with M54 from 09/02 up to 12/04

E65/E66 with N62/N73 from 09/01 up to 12/04

E85 (Z4) with M54 from 09/02 up to 12/04

E83 (X3) with M54 from 09/03 up to 12/04
Internal insulation failure of BREMI ignition coils may cause reduced ignition firing power, or ignition coils failure. The customer may complain of erratic engine performance and the "Service Engine Soon"
light illumination.

In order to remedy this situation, BMW is conducting a Voluntary Emissions Recall Campaign to check, and replace if necessary, ignition coils in all affected vehicles.




Also they have it all by vin if it does not come up then it is not due and BMW won't pay
