It's really hard to tell, but, on mine, it seems like it's only the fronts, and maybe even only one wheel.

But, I could be wrong because it's so violent, that it's hard to tell.

Are your center steering wheel inlays round on the 3 series?
For the 5 series, they're replacing only the round (sport) steering wheel takata airbags.

I don't think it matters in the least how many prongs you have, so, I go with what BMW recommends since it's cheap, and it works.

As everyone said, the red stick should be flush with the top of the filler neck.

Thanks for that heads up.

I think it's funny that the original poster originally spelled brakes correctly throughout, and then, a year later, spells it breaks throughout.

A troll for sure.
