2008 528i Recall

Hey guys. My rear lights all gave out two days ago. The ground wire burn out. I reached out to the dealer and they said my vehicle was one of those with issues and that there was a recall last year.

They're going to fix it free of charge. Anyone have this done? How long did the dealer take to fix. Thanks.

You should have received the recall notice from BMW in the mail last November. If not, you should inform BMW that you are the current owner for any potential future recalls.

Anyway, I'm not exactly sure how long the actual work takes, as I dropped mine off late afternoon at the dealer, drove off in a loaner, and came back the next afternoon to pick up my updated car.

Thanks. My right side went out. They should do my left side as well if it hasn't gone out.
