Bmw airbag recall

Ok so today I got the letter saying that my car is being recalled. I called the bmw dealership and they told me they don't have the parts yet. I've been told that bmw sends you a second letter to inform you that the car is ready for the fix. So my question is how long will it take for them to get the parts and fix the car?

Recall Letter

I also received my recall letter yesterday, it specifically states that they don't have the parts available yet but will send a second letter when they are able to perform the recall.
The models affected, 2002-2006 3 Series, 2002-2003 5 Series and 2003-2004 X5 SUV.
It also had a statement: 'BMW is not aware of any incidents in BMW vehicles.'

I had looked this up and there's already an extremely detailed thread on it, so I'd ask there since that thread answered all my questions without me even having to ask them first.

Here's a direct link to the 5 page thread about this topic that has been going on and dropping information since Oct/2014 - July/2015 (so far): http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=804444

Hope this is helpful.
