Hope I don't those of us that have our cars lowered don't get some BS that they won't repair our cars under the recall.

Don't think so.
There was no noise, no vibration or any other warning with my car. It just broke under acceleration.

And yet they remain the best selling manufacturer. Not even mentioning the many reliability issues that don't reach recall list. And don't tell me "yes, but I buy it for the performance" because BMs are not the performance benchmark anymore. Think it's time to move on.

Move on to what?

Every manufacturer has quality issues and recalls.

Anything else. Merc, Lexus, Audi. Of my friends with BMs, all of them have had problems. Every single one of them. 2 out of 5 owners at work have had their engines replaced??? Is that acceptable for a premium brand?? I'm tired of being mocked by other owners about the BM owners and their frequent visits to the dealership. Wtf. I'd rather have 5% less "excitement" and not visit the freakin dealer every month. Sorry, but after 7 years It's buy-buy BMW.

You're moving away from BMW because your two friends have/had problems with their cars and because you're tired of other people's stupid mocking?

Do you guys think the 2011 LCI E90 335xi is affected? I see 335i but I'm wondering if mine could have this issue too.

I've had my fair share of problems, believe me. Not sure what is so funny, although I can understand you want to justify driving a BM. I just struggle to do it these days. So much other more reliable and exciting options out there?

exactly my thoughts! This is the type of owner brand deserves to have. Those who make other people's problems their own. I'm sure the other peoples who's engines had to be replaced were maintained properly too? Sounds like the struggle to afford the car is real so he's finding excuses to get the Camry he's always wanted. Wait, they have airbag recalls too! Not to mention piston ring issues...

We just got the recall letter from BMW last Thursday. My wife's 2011 335is Coupe is affected, so now it's both the airbags and the driveshaft CV joint. In both cases, "Remedy Unavailable".

Tentative plans are to replace her car with a Euro Delivery 2018 M3 in May next year and we would sell the 335is when the M3 is redelivered, sometime in July 2018. While I'm sure that the rear CV joint parts will be available long before that, I'm still not sure about the airbags.

Get your info straight from the source. Go to www.bmwusa.com/recall and enter your full VIN. If your model is currently on the recall list it will show up here. If not, it could be added later, so you can check back periodically.

If you're the original owner and you still live at the same address, you will get a letter in the mail. If you're not the original owner and you've never registered your car with BMW, you should register it at www.bmwusa.com/myBMW so that you can be notified about safety recalls. Likewise, if you changed your address and never notified BMW about the address change, you should notify BMW at the same link.

Just followed your instructions and checked my vin on the site. Not a single recall

Re symptoms, does it feel like if you press the gas, it loses some traction and 'sliding' occurs? I've had that a few times but can't figure out what's happening, I thought it was a thread prb but they all look fine. I've eased up on the gas when that happens and it goes back to normal.
