If you get the PPI done at BMW dealer, they can look up and tell you about the history of the car and tell you if there are any open recalls/TSBs pending on that car.
im going to see the car later this week and im going to ask if he has all of the paperwork for those replacements----are those something that often need to be replaced multiple times?
