When I called BMW to have my defective airbag replaced they do not have the part available. The defect can apparently lead to serious injury or death so I think it is imperative that they do this immediately.

Takata recall. The contact owns a 2012 BMW M3. The contact stated that NHTSA campaign number: 16V071000 ( air bags) exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the repair. The contact received the recall notification in March of 2016. The dealer ( braman motorcars 2901 okeechobee blvd, West palm beach, fl, 33409) stated that the parts were unavailable for the repair, and recommended the contact to speak to the manufacturer. The manufacturer was contacted and confirmed that parts were unavailable for the recall repair, and informed the contact that he would be notified when the parts were available and no further assistance was offered. The contact had not experienced a failure. Parts distribution disconnect...updated 08/22/17 **updated 08/31/17 updated 12/5/2017

Takata recall is taking too long to replace my drivers side airbag in my 2012 BMW M3 convertible. I called rusnak BMW in westlake village, ca in November 2016 for a status update as to why they still have not contacted me to replace my driver's side takata airbag despite a recall notice in March of 2016. They indicated they have not gotten to my model year and that replacement takata airbags are not coming as quickly as they should.
