The only ones who benefit from a class action suit are the lawyers. I started my paper trail with them and I'll see what can come out of it. In the mean time, I am spreading the word via the Internet.

My car's VIN was initially not listed either, but it is now since about two weeks ago. If your car's manufacturing date falls in the dates listed in the recall, I would think your car is included.

I have 19" wheels and RFTs on my '11 335is. I feel the car handles very well. Make sure you inflate the tires to what is on the door sticker.

My son's 2011 E90 M3 has also been very reliable. He has 58,000 miles on the odometer. We take care of our cars, and maybe that's what makes us an exception?

Our two current BMWs have been very reliable. We have had a total of six BMWs over the years. All have been very reliable except for a 1983 533i that kept melting catalytic converters.

My dealer said it took a long time for them to get the Driver-Side Front Air Bag Module parts for the last re-call. It may get ugly this time around since the re-call is so large. :dunno:
