Is your car affected by this? Build date can be found on sticker inside drivers door. Reg plates are unreliable sadly.

That's the answer I've had, June 13 build (PWG). Bizarrely though they also told me it only affected smaller engine variants and not the Mx35is

Feb 2016 built M235i, I've not been contacted and I'm sure they must have fixed the problem before Feb 2016

When you say got the lot done, what doesn't "the lot" involve.
I have a 64 120d Xdrive also which is going in for its first service next week. They didn't mention the "enhancement" to me. I had to actually ask them. They did say a new cap was required.

Had mine done.
116i, May 2014 build.

Dealer didn't say exactly what they did, only that they needed to do the quality enhancement. I know they didn't change the brake fluid as the service interval hasn't been reset (unless they forgot to do it).
