Pending recall?

When I was in the dealer getting my 2013 328 looked at a few weeks ago the service advisor mention the system where he was entering my data showed there was a recall coming for the car. He said the system did no show any details about the recall, only that one was coming. Does anyone have any details about a pending recall?

Thanks imtjm. I typed in my VIN and got the same message. I am surprised that don't have some information on the nature of the recall.

Had the recall done on my 2013 328i yesterday. Now my car's backup camera defaults to off when the car is put into reverse. Turns out others have this issue too.

Nice QA job, BMW...

I also have a pending recall (2013 335i). I called customer service and they said it was for a NAV update (not worth a trip to the dealer for me).

The BMW NA recall website shows mine has a recall, but when I called BMW NA and the BMW service center, both said I do not have a recall or a pending recall. Pretty confusing. If it is simply the NAV update, mine was updated in DEC12 before I bought the car in FEB13.
