My 2001 (along with other M5s and Z8s) is held up at Halifax for a DME replacement. The dealer notice said that the cause is an incorrectly manufactured DME and it requires replacement and reprogramming of the DME.

Does anyone have more information on what the DME is and whether I should be concerned or not?
