What is the "type code"? Is that a model designation?

I got it this afternoon. No other information. Recommend you talk to your dealer. If they give you a deer in the headlights look, tell them to download it off the bulletin system on the BMW dealer system.

Thanks, El. My early 2008 GT is on this list. It's also on the list for the brake recall. I'll try to get one appointment to get both recalls done on the same day.

Jeff, thanks man, maybe the third one they put on ( Part # 247) after the Red River breakdown is the one that's on the re call fix.

Now if they can figure out the hesitation issue after braking, I would be a happy camper. It seems the new airbox and software upgrade made it worse. I'm up in Woodland Park Co. for the summer and its not fun rolling on, leaning into a curve, and no throttle for a sec.

But I'm still having cool weather fun.

Yay!

My '06 GT has apparently escaped that list of numbers (too early a build).

Now if it would only escape the falling over stuff.


Memo to me: I need to go out and paint today....

Thanks for the info. I'm curious though how we know this before any of the dealerships. I thought I'd be proactive and get my bike scheduled. Called the dealership this morning and they have nothing. Said he logged into the bulletin this morning and no recalls have been issued yet.

I appreciate the heads up and the timely info, knowledge is key. But is this for real? Perhaps not a recall but some kind of service bulletin or internal note? Just checking, I hate calling the dealer and getting laughed at, and they are very nice when I know more than they do.
