Post BMW, Rolls-Royce recall nearly 200,000 cars over leaky brakes

Do you own a BMW product? Does that BMW product have a V8 or V12 engine under the hood? If you answered yes to both questions, listen up BMW of North America has announced that they are getting ready to recall about 198,000 cars because their power braking systems have the potential to develop a leak.

The affected cars include:
2002-08 BMW 745i/Li, 750i/Li, and 760i/Li
2007-08 BMW Alpina B7
2004-10 BMW 645i and 650i
2004-10 BMW 545i and 550i
If you happen to own a Rolls-Royce Phantom (2003-2010), don't think your opulence can escape a potentially faulty braking system. Your ultra-lux land yacht is also part of the impending recall.

Though the leak can cause a reduction in braking power, BMW says the vehicles can still be brought to a halt safely. No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of this issue. Official press release available after the jump.

Dude, I just saw this on the news a few minutes ago and my first reaction was to run to the computer and head to e90post to see if the news had exploded already. Sad day for our beloved marque.
