    "You get a slight reduction in braking. You do not lose it"

    That's ridiculous.

    Driving fast and not getting full braking power will hopefully not cause any kills

    With that BMW is on Toyota level now and is damaging their image as premium seller


    Re: BMW recalls 350,000 cars :(

    A manufacturing fault on, say,  a 2001 car, that hasn't manifested itself yet?

    Let's be serious, the Press are exploding the potential risks!

    Decreasing brake power and getting no problems? Understood . I asume, you're driving like my grandma ;-)

    There are countless recalls every year from any manufacturer. Being a recall on a voluntary basis suggests that this is actually a minor issue.

    A leak in the servo assists only decreases the assistance, the brake power itself is still available to the full extent.

    And since the reduction in effectiveness of the brake servo doesn't happen overnight, the driver should not normally be taken by surprise by this potential problem.

    Paying high premium and sloppy brakes isn't matching well here, especially if a brand is committed to "Freude am Fahren". 

    Oh sorry , I forgot, a BMW driver doesn't need brakes, only pedal to the metal Smiley

    Like somebody said before: there are so many recalls, even in the premium brand department, nothing special about it. Unless of course the press succeeds in blowing this up, like they do with many other things.

    It is actually a very honorable thing BMW does: the recall is voluntary, they didn't wait until they were "ordered" to recall these cars.

    As to the pedal to the metal: may I ask what car brand you drive ? I'm pretty sure I'm going to find a similar polemic expression for your brand.  Smiley Cheers. Smiley
