Curious if any Canadian models are being recalled. I'm finding out with my dealership and will post when I get a response.

Thanks for the heads up! Looks like both of our cars are now affected but it sounds like there are no replacement parts even available at this time to perform the recall.

You can put your VIN in on BMW's site to check if your car is affected.

Thank you for contacting BMW of North America, LLC regarding the Safety Recall Campaign for the driver-side front air bag module. The following BMW models, which are not part of earlier Takata-related air bag recalls, are included: certain model year 2006 to 2015 BMW 1 Series, 3 Series, X1 SAV, X3 SAV, X5 SAV, and X6 SAV.

If your vehicle is affected by this recall, you will receive an initial letter in April via First-Class Mail advising you of this recall; no action is required on your part at this time. You will receive a second letter when replacement parts become available requesting that you schedule an appointment to bring your vehicle to an authorized BMW center for service and repair. At this time, we are not able to provide you with a timeframe as to when parts may become available.

To access a FAQ document with additional information, please visit www.bmwusa.com, and select "click here" under the Safety Recall section.

The BMW Customer Relations and Services Department is available Monday through Friday from 9:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M., ET. You can reach us at 1-800-831-1117.

We are truly sorry for any inconvenience should your vehicle be affected.

Looks like the first anyone will hear will be in April. The BMW site isn't updated with our cars, just the first recall.
