Default Anyone able to run VIN to check rod bearing TSB?

Looking at an '02, wanted to know if the rod bearing TSB had been done. I called the local dealer and all they could tell me about was the airbag recall. Can anyone check for me?

Have you tried BMWs official recall page thing? I am not sure if it would show whether or not it has been done by might as well give it a try.

Yea, it only brings up the air bag recall. Apparently the passenger side has been done but not the driver's side yet
