If I have a 2004, do I need to check this or is it only prior to 2004?

Hi. I have a 2001 and it would fall under the TSB. Can someone check if the rod bearing was completed on this car? VIN WBSBL93431JR12189 Thanks in advance.

Hi,
I just purchased a 2002 M3 vert 6 speed, carbon black on black with 91K on the clock, VIN # WBSBR93442EX23060. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could tell me at what mileage the rod bearing recall was performed. I am trying to decide if I need to do this quickly or if I have some time.

Hey, Didn't know this thread existed.

If you're not charging, yet, () I would appreciate you or another individual to check for me. I am having a hell of a time getting the information from the dealer.

BMWNA was not willing to share the information, and my local dealers seem to not like me doing my own maintenance. Anyone willing to look up this VIN for a 6/2002 build? Thanks in advance!

My local dealer won't tell me either. Not sure why they make it so difficult to the owners. Can anyone check WBSBR93462EX21942 ?
