It only applies to the 325i, and specifically the fuel pressure regulator. Not a big problem. And it is only a concern due to the replacement cost. That information has been there for over a year.

what would happen if you did have a problem with a fuel pressure regulator? what would be the symptoms?

nycbmw325is is an unknown quantity at this point
Hmmm.. I just read that article and my answer is A) so what.. trhese are minor things with minior costs. and B) thye missed a bunch of things that are specific to certain years, and others that are just likely across a number of years. All in all despite the alarmist position they seem to take, look at the overall score for quality and reliability.. does not seem to reflect any serious problems
