How long has it been since the recall was initiated?

A week from today, the airbag gets replaced. I can't wait to get the customer satisfaction survey for this marathon wait to have the car serviced.

My 2010goes in Monday for drivers' side replacement after a nearly 2 year wait. The recall started in 2013.

Some Car & Driver Blob updates for you;

UPDATE 2/10/2016, 11:30 a.m.: Audi, BMW, and Volkswagen are recalling some 1.7 million U.S.-market vehicles for potentially defective Takata-sourced driver’s-side airbags.
BMW is recalling 840,000 vehicles from 2006 through 2015; these vehicles weren’t among the roughly 765,000 that BMW had previously recalled for Takata airbags. The BMWs involved are: 2006–2011 3-series sedan and M3, 2006–2012 3-series wagon, 2007–2013 3-series and M3 coupe and convertible, 2007–2010 X3, 2007–2013 X5, 2008–2013 1-series coupe and convertible, 2008–2014 X6, and 2013–2015 X1.
UPDATE 6/2/2016, 10:00 a.m.:
BMW is recalling 91,806 SUVs as part of the expanded Takata passenger-side airbag recalls. This recall affects the 2007–2011 BMW X5, the 2008–2011 BMW X6, and the 2010–2011 BMW X6 ActiveHybrid.
UPDATE 9/9/2016, 9:00 a.m.: BMW announced it will recall some 110,000 cars in Japan to replace potentially defective Takata-supplied airbag inflators. The recall affects passenger-side airbags on 44 BMW models made between 2004 and 2012, including the 116i, 118i, and 320i. The recall is part of a massive order from Japan’s transport ministry that 7 million vehicles be recalled by 2019.
UPDATE 12/12/2016, 3:30 p.m.: To date, at least 184 people have been injured by Takata airbags in the United States, according to a new report released by NHTSA on the recall’s progress. This is the first hard number the agency has specified since investigations began in late 2014. Repairs won’t be finished until at least September 2020 (in May, NHTSA set December 2019 as the end date). Another round of cars—including Tesla products, supercars from Ferrari and McLaren, and additional model years of previously recalled models—have been added to our master list of vehicles plagued by the defective Takata inflators. By 2020, NHTSA expects there will be 42 million vehicles with at least 64 million inflators under recall. As of today, the count stands at about 29 million vehicles with 46 million inflators.
UPDATE 2/6/2017, 5:00 p.m.: BMW is recalling 230,117 cars in the U.S. that may have a Takata driver’s-side airbag. The company said it is possible that 1 percent of certain 2000–2003 models may have had their airbags replaced with a Takata unit during a service visit, whereas originally these models used non-ammonium-nitrate airbag inflators made by Petri AG. BMW said it shipped 14,600 Takata replacement airbag parts to U.S. dealers between 2002 and 2015 but had no way of knowing how many were actually installed. While some of the recalled vehicles are already under recall, many are new to our list below, which has been updated. The recalled vehicles include the 2000–2002 3-series sedan, coupe, wagon, convertible, and M3; the 2001–2002 5-series sedan, wagon, and M5; and the 2001–2003 X5. Owners will receive notification in March. Dealers will check for and replace any Takata airbags they find.
UPDATE 2/27/2017, 6:30 p.m.: Takata has officially pleaded guilty to criminal wire fraud for covering up the engineering defects that have led to at least 17 deaths and the biggest recall in automotive history. The guilty plea comes six weeks after a Justice Department announcement that Takata had agreed to a $1 billion settlement, including $850 million to compensate automakers for repairs, $125 million for a victim settlement fund, and a $25 million criminal fine. Three Takata executives also have been charged with fraud.
UPDATE 5/19/2017, 5:30 p.m.: Four automakers—Toyota, Subaru, BMW, and Mazda—have agreed to pay a combined $553 million for economic losses. The automakers have jointly settled a class-action lawsuit demanding owners be compensated while their cars are undergoing repairs. Owners of approximately 15.8 million cars in the U.S. are eligible. The lawsuit does not compensate owners for any alleged lost resale value in their cars nor does it address personal injury or property damage claims. The court must approve the settlement before it is final.
UPDATE 6/16/2017, 11:00 a.m.: Takata will file for bankruptcy “as early as next week,” according to sources speaking to Reuters. The filing is no surprise. Company finances began unraveling in early 2016 as lawsuits, fines, lost sales, declining stock values, and recall costs left Takata in the red with billions in liabilities. Key Safety Systems, a Michigan auto supplier owned by the Chinese electronics supplier Ningbo Joyson, is the purported buyer. Takata owes automakers $850 million for recall costs it must pay by 2018. The U.S. Justice Department is expected to be a creditor in the bankruptcy filing.
UPDATE 6/26/2017, 11:30 a.m.: Takata officially filed for bankruptcy today and has agreed to sell the majority of its business to Key Safety Systems, a Michigan-based automotive supplier owned by Chinese electronics supplier Ningbo Joyson, for $1.6 billion.

AFFECTED VEHICLES (total U.S.-market number in parentheses, if known):
BMW (more than 1.97 million): 2000–2011 3-series sedan; 2000–2012 3-series wagon; 2000–2013 3-series coupe and convertible; 2000–2013 M3 coupe and convertible; 2001–2003 5-series and M5; 2001–2013 X5; 2007–2010 X3; 2008–2013 1-series coupe and convertible; 2008–2011 M3 sedan; 2008–2014 X6 (including hybrid); 2011–2015 X1.


That should put this recall into perspective. Largest consumer recall in history. Also, class action suit has been approved and the cash is in place. You can file for reimbursement, including installation costs if any and certain rental car costs during those repairs.

I finally got a call from the dealership. My replacement airbag will be in on Thursday. Hopefully it won't take more than 30 to 40 minutes to replace.

Got mine done on Saturday. It took about an hour. It took a year to address from the first recall letter I received. I'm just glad I was accident free the whole time and didn't end up with shrapnel in my face.

I had a battery cable recall done with my air bag recall. Didn't even know the battery cable was a issue.

Update. The dealership called me this morning to tell me the airbags have not come in. Still waiting since last March. What ineptitude!

I just had mine done today and I didn't even wait an hour. Speedy turn-around. It would have been quicker but the service manager wanted to talk about my car and my ACM modded exhaust.

Could you please elaborate on this a little? I got my airbag replaced about 3 weeks ago and now I have an ABS malfunction yellow light on (NOT DSC). It's possible that it's a battery issue but when I saw your post about an install error it makes me wonder. What exactly did they do for to your car that messed with the steering sensor?

I have the Carly App to read the codes specifically. The air bag recall install required them to disconnect and reconnect to the steering sensor. I highly recommend you get the codes read to be sure that?s not it. I think I had the DSC and brake light.

Which dealership did you call? Vista or BMW of Ft. Lauderdale? Or did you call Braman (Miami or WPB)? I have been using Braman, but I'm getting tired of the wait.

Brought mine in last week for the airbag and battery cable. Went off without a hitch. I dropped my car off and had them give me a loaner---a '17 330xi. No problems to speak of at this point.

Dropped in to my dealer for this job today. They had it in and out in under 45 minutes.

30 of that I spent test-driving a 2018 F80 6MT with nothing but the executive pack for options. Nobody home in the steering wheel, like a weak damp handshake, and the mandatory nav gives me high blood pressure on principle, but the rest of the car was just wonderful and the nutballs who say it sounds like crap just need to stay behind the wheel and enjoy the car from inside. Did the whole test drive with windows down under overpasses, next to walls to get a feel for the sounds it really makes and it sounds rad as hell, and it has such a different character from the N55 in my wife's car in power delivery. So, if I total mine and now am more likely to live through the accident, and I can't find a suitable E90M to replace it with, the F80 isn't a hard no for me, at all, might even be the top of the list.

About 2 months ago I got my BMW NA letter telling me airbag parts were now available for my car and to call me dealer and make an appointment.
I call the dealer and they tell me they don't have the parts and to wait a couple more weeks.

I call the customer service number on the letter and explain to them what the dealer told me. He tells me he will call them and the dealer should get back to me.
About 2 hours later I get a call from the dealer, same person I spoke with earlier, who tells me wait two weeks.

About a week later I get a call from the dealer again, parts are available and make an appointment.
A week before the appointment I get a call again telling me no parts "nationwide" and they'll call me when they get more in.

I think someone more "important" than me got my part.
