The affected cars include almost all the models from the BMW range. The 1-Series, 3-Series, 5-Series, 6-Series (Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe) and 7-Series while affected SUVs include the X3, X5 and X6.
BMW India will contact the owners of the affected diesel vehicles. This service will be free of cost. The repair work is expected to take around 1-3 hours, depending on the model. This comes under the worldwide recall of BMWs that affected 1.6 million units for the same issue.
