BMW M5 and M6 recalled over faulty oil pumps

BMW has sent out a bulletin to its dealerships, demanding they cease sales and deliveries of the M5 and M6 Coupe and Convertible models because of a potential faulty oil pump. According to the blurb, vehicles fitted with the affected part are at risk of suffering from a a drop in oil pressure, which will obviously put the health of that 412 kW (560 hp) 4.4-litre bi-turbo V8 at risk. Owners of said cars have also been contacted and told that their car will be collected for repair. Nothing kills fun like a sudden lack of lubrication.
