New Spring Coil Replacement

Anybody hear about the replacement coils talked about in this forum (which was the source of the clunk sound in the rear when the M5 is going through uneven roads) -- it was supposedly to be done around December 2012 but that month has passed and have not heard anything.

Likely post Q1/2013 ... no exact date yet
Word on the street is it will be redesigned spring mounts

2013 BMW M5  [5.00]
Does anyone have a BMW bulletin # to reference? My dealer is telling me they can't find any evidence of a repair, recall or known issue in their system. I find that hard to believe after seeing the many pages of complaints from virtually every M5 owner on this board.

I believe there's no official bulletin/note yet.
It's all word by mouth (most of us heard it at our visits to the ///M studio in Munich)
I was also told this particular issues will only be addressed on a per complaint basis and
won't be an official recall for all cars (at least back in October 2012)
