Takata Airbag recall

I guess it was just a matter of time until it hit us too. How long do you think before the dealerships start taking care of this?

Hmm, this might be a perfect excuse to have them install the Performance Steering Wheel at no charge. :-)

My thoughts exactly! Looks like you can get the basic one with the blue line for $680 on getbmwparts, really tempted right now!

Just got off the phone with my dealer, they said the car isn't even flagged in the system yet and it will be 4-6 months before they start getting the supplies in to fix the issue. Hang tight and drive safely!

This is very discouraging! The whole reason for upgrading my e39 540i -6 speed was to improve safety.

Chain Blue is correct- total breakdown of product development by BMW- a company that has become too mainstream. Using supplier certification is a license for failure. Sure Takata is legally responsible but will it even be in business in a year?

Interesting. So I guess this means that our M3's are all going to get new airbags?

Wish I'd known that before I paid $600 bucks to buy a new airbag for my old 2009, haha.

It had a scuff on the airbag cover from a home depot trip (and I am that much of an idiot, because in trying to remove the scuff, I used some solvent that made the airbag cover look awful).

I checked my vin in the NHSTA DB for recalls and it returned 0 recalls. Can y'all check to see if anyone else's comes up?

CognitiveD- same here. I don't think the recall is official yet from BMW, the press articles say "it's coming"... hence VIN's not yet flagged.

Q30. Will BMW give me a loaner vehicle until an interim or final repair part is available?
If a notified customer requests a loaner vehicle and replacement parts are not available, BMW has authorized its centers to provide or assist customers with alternate transportation, subject to availability.

Does this mean when you get the recall letter you can demand a free loaner even if parts aren't available yet?

Save your receipt! I'd go for having BMW USA pay you back. They probably will. Or ... your new airbag might be recalled too.

I think that's a bad idea, aside from it being completely out of the realm of possibility. Why would you want to get a 320i or whatever loaner for months instead of your M3 anyways?

It's a huge plus for everyone with delaminating BMW roundels on their airbag... Look at the plus side

Does this recall only affect the steering wheel airbag? I'm more concerned with someone replacing the one in the dash. How's that gonna turn out???
