Does anybody know if this is for all listed cars, or some of them? I'm expecting G20 delivery in the next few days.

Very unfortunate, however, at least they are doing a recall. Wish they would do the same for the N20 timing chain/guides as well

I went to my Croatian dealer today, they checked the car key. I have one software update that needs to be carried out but nothing for the engine. And if something comes up, they'll let me know. 330i, 1/2019.

They increased the warranty length for timing guides/chain, my X1 has been increased to 7y/125k according to my dealer
