Thatís nothing special, if your car is covered and you have the symptoms then all the components you mentioned will be replaced. We got them replaced on all of our 211s. Hopefully they will last.

Glad another one got it covered. Thumbs up!

Seeing as mine is a 2005 and it just developed the problem, im sure the new parts will last another 14 years or more.

Just picked up my 2008 E63 from having all the components replaced. Seamless process.

Had mine done 3 year ago.... Hasn't run since. They kept installing it where the gauge would hang up and give me incorrect fuel readings... And of course I burnt up the pumps while troubleshooting it. I'm on the second pumps now but they left my battery cable loose this timetand I drove it around for a week and now I believe I have a fried ECU. Injector 1 and the cooling fan both stay on for about 15 seconds after I shut the car off fuel washing my cylinder wall. I have also ran it out if gas again and I think I need new pumps... again. Once I finally get this thing running I'm going to need new cats as well. Hopefully I haven't fried cylinder 1 yet.

For those who've had the recall performed, did they also replace your fuel filter? I had the recall performed but cant find my documentation for it, and I'm coming up on my fuel filter replacement interval.

I believe the filter is built into the fuel pump... The filter clogging and overheating the pumps is what the recall is for but I'm not 100%.

Of course because the filter is part of the entire pump assembly.

So I guess I am SOL! I just looked at my car to see when the manufactured date was and it is 12/03. Does this mean that I do not qualify? If I do not, can I purchase the old style pumps?

The pumps are 600 a pop on Rick Auto or it autohausaz. I can't recall which. That's the best deal I have found.
