Looks like Takata (airbag manufacturer) may go bankrupt next week.

Daniel's BMW, because I drive by them every day. The first day of the week I dropped off a car and picked up a loaner. Each following day I swapped a car out, until Friday I dropped off the loaner and picked up the last car. It was just too much easier to avoid.

Choosing between all the SE PA dealers, I'd go with Otto's.

Ooooh - good to know. Also, for those who are "waiting for the dealer to get back to you." Call them yourself. I had called my dealership a while ago, when I first got the BMW notice in the mail, and they told me they would contact me once they stock the new parts. Fast forward a couple months and I hadn't heard a thing. 'called them myself and schedule an appointment that week without issue. Apparently they had the new airbags in for a long time but never bothered to schedule the recalls.

Thanks Ian! Just booked myself in for Tuesday afternoon. My buddy who is the service advisor said he'd hide a part for me. LOL

What's the rush? I mean aren't BMW responsible to get you a replacement regardless of when you take it in.

Ya right? I mean, maybe you're better off with an airbag from a different manufacturer anyway.

I'm wondering about this too. If supplies totally dried up and there were some cars out there without replacement airbags, are they required by law to commission another company to manufacture a compatible replacement? Would that ever actually happen?
