Yes they can. All work done on a BMW at a BMW dealer is recorded in their systems. They can lookup exactly what work was done to your car and when.

Or with full maintenance they don't replace your rotors because they didn't actually need replacing. I have no doubt that if you don't have maintenance included, dealers find ways to pad the bill.

I don't think it is so hard. The cellular radio could have been incorporated in a swappable module.

Obviously they can't buy them back but neither can they (or should they) prevent AutoNation from selling cars it owns. That would be asserting ownership rights over cars they do not own.

Why do I need to brace myself, my 2011 X5 is already affected. The more the merrier, hopefully every car gets recalled.

If BMW was that worried about being sued, it would just buy back the affected cars. It won't do that because the cost of doing so is greater than the legal liability. OTOH AutoNation has to act in...

Personally, I like what AutoNation is doing. I think it is a bit silly not to sell cars with this airbag recall given the repair is probably 1-2 years away.

BMW FS is forcing dealers to store their lease returns? How are they doing that. Is there some clause in the dealer's contract with BMW FS.

I read it differently to you. I think any care with a driverside airbag is 1 or 2 unless it has been recently replaced with another takata inflator, in which case it would be group 4.

According to the current BMW policy published on this thread, unlikely. Unless you have a very good relationship with a dealer who is generous with loaners of course.

If you get a new BMW, you also have the option of extending the new car warranty for another 2 years and 50,000 miles. Or you can extend for another 3 years and 27,000 miles (which is what I did).

How did you get a better warranty? The BMW new car warranty is much better than the CPO warranty.
