    There is a BMW recall at the moment for a brake fault or potential brake fault. I've got no other details but if you have a BMW it will be worth checking to see if this recall applies to you.

    A BMW rep said that this is unlikely to cause complete break failure, just a lack of assistance whilst braking.

    Probably just a vacuum hose if it doesn't cause total failure.

    I've just checked it applies to V8 and V12 models only so us poverty stricken 6 and 4 cylinder model owners are in the clear.

    BMW has voluntarily recalled about 130 000 vehicles, which are equipped with twin-turbo engine for a few hours, ABC News presented a report on the study of potential problems in fuel pumps on these vehicles
