    I have a 328xit with 30,000 miles and a 2008 528xi with 6,000 miles. When I took the 528 for service I mentioned an occasional tapping noise, No Big Deal. Two hours later I get a phone call that there is a design flaw and they are replacing the entire head. So I take the 328 to them, same thing. Two complete heads in one week, no questions asked. What is up with that? No recall?:confused:

    Just be happy you're getting a brand spankin' new head on each of them. For free.
    I sure would be, defect or not. As long as the problem is rectified, that is.

    The new heads are upgraded with check valves

    that keep more oil in the valve compensators, this is not changing how they run, it seems to be related to driving style, and most people don't notice the noise, thats why no recall.
