Took mine to Parkview. Was not happy about having it done, I have a 2003 and the issues were suppose to be cleared up for 2003 and beyond.

Stalker, did you request a specific tech ie. a master tech to do the work on your car? Also what are your impressions of Parkview? I do sometimes bring my car in there for service but still not a 100% sure if I want to take there for the rod/bearings recall. It's going to be either Parkview or Downtown.

Ya I requested the master tech does it, and they told me that he is the one that does it anyway, there was one being done when I actually dropped the car off. They have done several at parkview.
Paul, its the same one.

I have been pretty happy with Parkview service, I always deal with Mario. I also purchased my car from there though.

Hey Stalker, Do you remember the name of the master tech that worked on your car? Reason being, I just got off the phone with Mario and he was saying that since all the techs have done the recall before it shouldn't matter who does the service. Interesting, I always thought they would assign it to a master tech.

There are some plaques behind Mario's desk, his name is on the one to the left I think, there are only a few master techs there.
They gave me an X3 for one day and a 323 for another.

Brother brought his E46 M3 in for the recall in the States, she was in overnight.....it's a fairly extensive procedure.

All's fine now though

Its actually not as bad as some think. It can be done in one day if your car is in first thing in the morning. Don''t know if its just me, but the car seems to rev a little slower since the recall, but Im pretty sure its just in my head.

North American recall, but after 03 I believe was not affected.

yes, after 03 was affected, my car is a 03. Call your dealer, and give them your VIN and they should be able to tell you if you need it or not. If they have not contacted your by now, then you should be in the clear, but you should double check as dealers are not dependable normally.

Im still pissed off about the whole thing cause that is one reason I waited for the 2003 models to come out so I would not have to worry about this.
