BMW Deflates with their latest Recall

Jul 19, 2014

BMW is recalling about 600k 3-series and M3 models from 2000 to 2006 due to an airbag defect in the passenger side that could produce internal pressure, causing the inflator to rupture on deployment.  BMW reports that in the event of a crash, metal fragments could injure the passenger.  


Affected Models:


2000-2005 3-series sedan

2000-2006 3-series coupe

2000-2005 3-series sports wagon

2000-2006 3-series convertible

2001-2006 M3 coupe

2001-2006 M3 convertible 


BMW will be notifying dealers and owners in August about the recall, and replacement will begin in October.  Takata, the same airbag supplier responsible for Subaru's latest recall last week is responsible for this as well.  


BMW owners can contact BMW at (800) 525-7417 or by email at customerrelations@bmwusa.com

Find Quality Touch Up Paint

Order touch up paint on-line!

All touch up paint is not created equal! The generic paints you buy at auto part stores will likely NOT match your vehicle’s paint exactly. Believe it or not, even the OEM dealers usually stock “close enough” colors. We recommend PaintScratch.com since their high quality paint is freshly made, they custom mix each order for you upon receipt, and they offer a color match guarantee.
