BMW NA has issued a recall for certain 4-cylinder powered 20i and 28i models for potential brake power assist problems. Here is the recall information from the NHTSA.

The affected models/years are as follows:

sDrive28i Roadster, and 2014 BMW 428i Coupe, and 428i xDrive Coupe. Due to insufficient lubrication, the vacuum pump that
supplies brake power assistance may fail.

Consequence:
A failure of the brake vacuum pump results in a reduction in braking power that could increase the risk of a crash.

Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will install a locking ring in the camshaft to retain the camshaft seal disk in the proper location,
free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2014. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
