Thanks for the heads up.
Looks like I just missed the cutoff with a coupe build date of Jan, 2002. I wouldn't be surprised if I'd be included though.
Also, I wonder if they'll will recall in Canada? It wouldn't be the first time they screwed us with recalls.

Looks like this has been extended to E46's 2000-2006
I guess it time to bring her in to the dealer

As per transport canada:

Road Safety Recalls Database
Transport Canada Recall # 2014299
Recall Date 2014/07/16
Notification Type Safety Mfr
System Airbag
Manufacturer Recall Number
Units Affected The number of vehicles or components affected by the recall. 40,915
Category Car
Recall Details
On certain vehicles, the passenger (frontal) airbag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment. Increased pressure may cause the inflator to rupture, which could allow fragments to be propelled toward vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury. This could also damage the airbag module, which could prevent proper deployment during a crash where deployment is warranted, increasing the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant. Correction: Dealers will replace the passenger airbag. Note: This is an expansion of recall 2013148.
Make Model Model Year(s) Affected
BMW 3 SERIES 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006

I got mine too but they said the part was on back order and they'd notify me when they had it back in stock.

I got my notice yesterday and my appointment is for December 3rd. Turns out there's two other recalls against the car. So getting 3 done on the same day.

HA ... I took my car into Endras this morning and they call me an hour and a half later and say oops we don't have the part. They are now back ordered!

I got a call from Maranello BMW today my appointment is cancelled, because they do not have the part in stock and they have to order it from Germany? I am on a waiting list!
