KBA: BMW Diesel Software could N57-recall trigger

The Diesel scandal BMW now? Apparently, it was playing at around 11,700 vehicles, incorrect Software, which didn’t work as planned, and now a recall. According to BMW, a technical error has ensured that the original with the correct Software delivered models with Triturbo-Diesel have been raised in the context of an update to a Software version that was not meant for the models M550d and 750d the predecessor generations of the F10 and F01.

By the engine Software, the exhaust gas purification has not worked as intended – which sounds quite a plausible explanation, but in the context of the current debate critics of the BMW will not follow reasoning with some degree of certainty. After approval by the Federal motor transport authority (KBA) to get the affected is 11,700 vehicles a your engine Software. In the connection of the exhaust-gas cleaning to work again as prescribed.

Like BMW to finanzen.net explained in detail, was the erroneously-used Software for the vehicles with a combination of SCR catalytic Converter and NOx storage catalytic Converter is correctly written. Since the active exhaust gas after-treatment of the person concerned, Triturbo-diesel of the old Generation N57 has a NOx storage catalytic Converter, does not work any more, the exhaust gas cleaning with the error Sodftware shall be liable as provided. Whether the models X5 M50d and X6 M50d with the same engine are affected, is currently still unclear.

The irregularities were discovered by the KBA, because an older BMW 750d was chosen to review. It occurred to me that the Triturbo-Diesel has not achieved the promised emission values. Is affected, apparently, the BMW M550d, the previous-Generation F10 with the now discountinued N57B30S1.

As soon as further Details are publicly reported at this point.
