yes this was a big deal on e46 chassis as well as many lowered VWs. Kinda weird driving down the road and suddenly boom, a curtain airbag slams you in the head.

BRING THE CAR TO THE DEALER; tell them exactly what happened. Try and document everything. BMW should fix it, and if not consider calling you insurance company to possibly file a claim as there is a big subro potential on BMW AG.

I had forget these issues until reading this. A little scary to see its still going on with the e9x platform. Is your car lowered?

edit: see that you drive an e46
