    Yep, so I don't understand the hoopla. It seems they are announcing they will replace your faulty pump with... another faulty pump.

    yeah.. except now it's publicized. I would rather pay for an aftermarket company with a real solution rather than wait for my pump to die again..

    It is not a coincidence no aftermarket company has a solution and that BMW has no solution.

    Its a fuel pump, there are many DI cars running Di fuel pumps, should not be hard. But like I said on other forums, bmw is starting to become the biggest pos on the road.
