I just got off the phone with the Service Manager @ the BMW Gallery of Norwell about the recent recall. He told me that the recall would "erase my Dinan programing" (which they originally programmed did for me).

I reminded him that it is an EPROM upgrade and he admitted that the swap is to replace the chip. To read between the lines I think this recall will adversely affect the performance and will not do it. The dealer actually recommended against it after I pressed a little.

The recall is open ended so I can always chance my mind. I do not know for sure but I would guess that the above holds true for sharked vehicles as well.
