2019 540i recall service notice

I got a recall relating to my rear back up camera. Made an appointment and my dealer is backed With these and can only do 9 per day. Made an appointment for 1/28.

I see no issue other than I donít like the view on the camera. Itís not really like my Infiniti. I think I look closer to objects than I actually am and it is not something Iím confident in. My Jeep has a better back up camera.

Hole this is a fix.

pretty sure the fix is only the contrast issue, i.e. if you don't like the zoom level that's not going to change (and kind surprise how long it took until you recall has been out since like Sept/Oct?)

What years cover the recall? I have a 2018 540i and no recall notice yet.

Despite that BMWNA made the backup camera standard on 2018 G30's, the federal law didn't apply until production starting May, 2018. My guess is the recall only applies to cars built May, 2018 and later.

Note that after they upgrade your firmware to version S, you'll have to redo a lot of your coding in addition to widescreen CarPlay if you have that now.

It's not in relation to bug whereby on occasions the camera simply doesn't work?
There has been at least 1 thread on that here in the past. Had the issue only 3 times personally.
