Swapped steering wheels and airbag recall



Has anyone with a swapped steering wheel and airbag had the airbag exchanged under the recall?

I'm looking to swap my non-sport to sport and since BMW issues recalls by VIN, I'd never be able to get it replaced by BMW, correct?
Would BMW simply exchange a used airbag based on the VIN of the car, from which the airbag came?

If anyone can help me out, please PM me.

They might do it, since it could have been a dealer that did the swap as they sell upgraded steering wheels.
Why don't you call them and find out?

I wouldn't even mention it. Just take it in and let them resolve it, one look and they'll know to use the round one and probably chalk it up to a small mistake. If you tell them in advance, they might deny it claiming the original wheel and equipment is no longer in the car... Best to leave it and if they question it, then you can tell them it's been changed. Or just play dumb and say that's how you bought the car - end of story.

This, just don't say anything and there a 99% chance they will replace it anyways
