Banner Battery Recall - 3 Series (E93 & E9?)

I don't remember getting the recall notice, and if I did, I probably thought it was about the previous battery cable recall. The SA told me when I was there yesterday for my final service under the 4 year warranty, that BMW had recalled batteries from a specific supplier (Banner Battery). Mine had that battery and I got a new one installed N/C. I don't think it was just a 335is or E93 issue but I'm not sure?

Here is what my service statement says regarding the battery: Perform Open Campaign - 0061890300, E93 Battery, B61 16 13
Cause: Campaign, 0061870 Check and replace "Banner" battery

7374 Open Campaign Inspected battery and found a Banner Battery installed. Replaced battery as per SIB 61 16 13 and registered with ISTA service functions. Battery Registration successful. (N/C)

Check to see if you have a Banner Battery in your car, and if so, there is an open campaign to replace those batteries at N/C.

Wasn't aware banner was an OEM battery supplier.

Thought it was just Exide and East Penn

You have an F Series? If so, not included as far as I know.

I did not, but just came back from service and they did not change it. When I go online and put my vin there's no recalls either...

No, I have an E93. I better go down to the garage and check my battery.

They replaced our E93's battery during the most recent service. I was told this is being done only on a case-by-case basis subject to load testing (and not necessarily for all the batteries from that manufacturer), and it only applies to MY11 bimmers produced over a few select months.
