According to the M-obsessed boys and girls at M5Post.com, BMW has issued an immediate stop sale on new M5 and M6 (both coupe and convertible) models. The problem stems from the engine oil pump; if the pump doesn't supply the correct amount of oil to the engine's moving parts, "severe engine damage" is the likely result. That's not good at all.
BMW is also "contacting customers that have already taken delivery and recommending customers not drive their cars." Sad news for M5 and M6 owners, to be sure, but we think it beats a bunch of blown engines. Check out the official bulletin above and be sure to contact your local dealer if you happen to be lucky enough to own one of the possibly affected machines.BMW issues stop sale on M5 and M6 models over fauly oil pump originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 21 Sep 2012 18:29:00 EST.

Thats pretty shitty. Its good that their warning people early. Replacing people's engines is quite expensive. That, and their probably still feeling the sting from the fines they recieved for not issuing a recall early enough.
