Yikes. All 3 of my cars might be recalled depending on affected Vin.

takata is a shitty company, I know this is old news but I'm still baffled. They should no longer exist.

Actually, E92/E92 3 Series are included. This language used by C&D:

2007–2013 3-series and M3 coupe and convertible

Could more clearly be written:

2007–2013 3-series coupe/convertible and M3 coupe/convertible

Because the F30 is a sedan and the recall only covers 3 Series sedans through MY2011.

FML another recall eh? Think that ups the total to four for my E88.

This'll be the first time it's been to an actual BMW dealer in about half a decade hah!

The passenger airbag occupancy sensor failed about 4 months ago on my 2007 Z4 M Roadster. BMW is replacing them through 2006 only, and told me too bad when I contacted them. This sucks in my opinion

Usually takes a month or so for it to show up on DCS and on that link -

So now I have to get this handled on my E46 and my E90... I'm glad the Fxx are not affected.

Here are the factory recall notices, FYI:

This also means that dealerships can not sell any new or pre-owned cars without performing this recall beforehand. I suspect a parts shortage will follow.

Jesus, what rock have you been under! :

I wish I could know what supplier provided the airbag for my '14 320 and if it's just a matter of TIME before any car with a Takata bag using the questionable propellant is recalled!

Noticed a sweeping recall of Mercedes models, but strangely enough the GLK was one of few models NOT recalled... Comforting, somewhat since I DD one.

Does anyone know if a possible reason for the recall, in addition to pieces of metal, etc., was due to airbags deploying inadvertently? Has anyone read or heard that? Just curious.

The Audi recall covers 170,000 vehicles from model years 2006 through 2013. The Audis involved are: 2006–2013 A3, 2006–2009 A4 cabriolet, 2009–2012 Q5, and 2010–2011 A5 cabriolet.

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.

The Volkswagen-branded vehicles, numbering 680,000, are from 2006 through 2014. The VWs involved are: 2009–2014 CC, 2010–2014 Jetta SportWagen and Golf, 2012–2014 Eos and U.S.-built Passat sedan, and 2006–2010 German-built Passat sedan and wagon.

Waiting for the letter. I bet it takes at least 6 months to a year for this to play out and meanwhile it makes hard to trade the car in.
