Yeah, I was told I had to bring in so computer could be read and part order authorized by BMW. Car was due for brake fluid change so got that done at same time. I still am driving it and seems the same as when I bought so I just waiting for them to call and tell me to bring car in.

So are you guys calling the dealers to have the parts ordered or the dealer is calling you about the recall?

Call them when VIN indicates remedy for recall.

I called bmwwusa first and then they gave me the ok to call the dealer. At first they said they are not servicing that recall yet, but when I told them BMW said to call..they ordered the part no questions asked after that

So I called the local dealer and they said for me to come in to get an inspection to see if the driveshaft needs to be replace. If it does, then they’ll order the part.

Surprised they want an inspection...if your vin falls in the recall, it should be replaced no questions asked

The amount of BS answers from dealers across the US is frightening....

Just got mine back today. Got the part the next day and install took only a couple hours. As for how it feels, it could be placebo, but it feels smoother and better. I don't know if it is steel or CF. Maybe it feels a tiny bit less powerful but the power delivery in conjunction with the transmission is smoother. Had a loaner 330i m sport brand new and I was so happy to get back in my 2017 m4. Too many buttons inside and the driving assistance nannies were intrusive. Also the suspension on the freeway couldn't compare.

You should look forward to the recall and report back on your experiences after!

Update on my original post.

I took my car to the dealer for inspection at 740 am. At 12 pm, I received a call saying the driveshaft does need to be replace and the parts will be ordered and should arrive tomorrow morning. At 2 pm the following day, I received a call saying my car is done and washed, ready for pickup. The paperwork says it is a carbon fiber driveshaft that was ordered and replaced.

Those who have gotten theirs replaced how many miles did the service department put on your car while it was in? They put 42 miles on mine so I'm wondering if that's standard.
