No incident but they are not attempting to fix the recall in a reasonable time for the front air bags. I have been contacting area BMW dealers for almost a year now without one call saying they have the parts or availability to get my car in. So I am forced to trade in.

I drove my car over a very minuscule crack in the road at an extremely low speed as I was making a turn and the passenger side airbag deployed. The car did not have a passenger at the time but the explosion of the airbag simultaneously blocked my view of the right side window while I was making a turn, put me into a state of shock and cut all power from my car. I was very lucky to have been the only person in the car while this happened and I was also fortunate enough to not have crashed into anything while my life was put in such severe danger from the state of chaos this airbag caused. I called BMW North America and they had stated that even though there is a recall for the passenger side airbag matching my car's VIN number, they said that the recall only covers the passenger side front airbag and not the side airbag!

I found out that the air bags in my car were recalled in October and contacted BMW of sarasota to schedule the repair, they said they would have the parts in a couple of weeks. In November I received the official recall letter from BMW usa and again called BMW of sarasota to find out when they were going to fix the car. They said my name was on a list and they would call me when they had the parts. It been four months and I still have not heard form the BMW dealership about replacing the airbags.
