My friend phoned and he was made aware that the n57 engines are getting recalled but the government website never stated what’s getting recalled. I’ve decided to pop into our nearest dealership to talk it about and they said it’s for our EGR valves this time

I bought a 335D saturday but not taken delivery yet. The dealer didn't know about the recall until I pointed it out yesterday. They are finding out details today and will advise. If I find anything out I will post here. Has anyone else heard any details about what the recall is about?

From what people is posting up and rumour has it that it looks like EGR cooler and valve again, which it was done about on the last recall 3 years ago. Apparently it was still causing problems and they’re rectifying it. But we shall see when the time comes

Wonder if the n47 will also get recalled at some point as it’s same set up and I am fairly sure they suffered similar faults aswell. Not sure if they were part of initial recall a few years back though
Worth a check on the gov website. Some of the n47 is getting a recall as well as I’m aware of

Rang bmw today and there is a recall again. My egr cooler was changed first time round and this time they are doing the cooler and egr valve. It’s booked in for 4th August.

only egr cooler replaced on mine,,also said this part is revised,as i asked about it ,and they said this part is a high temp replacement,,dont know what that meant really,as the temps are high in the system,maybe this keeps them cooler when up to temp,my 640d is iin on 25th july,,they give a glowing report on my f31 330d x drive,,,saying no leaks what so ever.brakes great/suspension/brakes etc etc,usually you get ..this needs replaced that needs replaced,,never even said windscreen wipers need replaced ha ha,they usually do,lady was amazed when i said car was a cat s and what i paid for it,,will post when 640d is done..

My car is now in to get the part(s) replaced. I will see if it’s just the EGR cooler they going to replace on mine as I’ve also had a phone call back when enquired about the recall the previous day saying it’s the cooler and valve to be replaced
