Munich prosecutors fined BMW 8.5 million euros ($9.65 million) for administrative failures after the German luxury automaker set up the wrong engine management software into 7,965 vehicles, resulting in higher emissions.

The prosecutor’s office stated BMW was guilty of oversight lapses. BMW stated it has accepted the findings of the Munich prosecutor.

The engine management software led to different readings of nitrogen oxide (NOx) pollution levels between test bench and existing emissions measurements, the prosecutor’s office stated on Monday.
