Yes, it was quick.

Mine took 10mins only for the driver airbag recall.

Tried getting Trivett at Parramatta to book me in but I've been ignored (as expected) for most of the week. I work nearby so if I don't hear anything by Friday I will just go in and hassle them.

Mine was done last week. Loving the new horn cap with new roundel. I got them to fit my new cover while they had it apart. Looks as good as new again.

I also found BMW horn caps aren't really durable for city driving.

Finally got booked in for tomorrow. Is any coding done? Do we need to flash back to stock or can we leave MHD flash in place?

Anyone over here on the west coast received any letters?

hmm I'm guessing they probably have my old address in their computer when I bought the car, but the latest rego is my current address.

Just go to the BMW Australia website and put your details in there. Or call 1800 243675 and have your chassis # handy.

FWIW, my airbag was done on 13 July but, I received a letter today dated 20 July asking me to contact a dealer urgently to get it changed.

I haven't received anything but just checked my F20 and got this.
Reassuring.

Your vehicle's airbag is faulty and it could kill or seriously injure you or other people in your vehicle from when it reaches six years after its year of manufacture.

There is no immediate known risk with the airbag, but there will be in the future. Please arrange for the free rectification as soon as possible after 1 December, 2018.

Wow, I can't believe this thread was started in 2016.

Mine's booked in for changeover next Tuesday. Takes a couple of hours.

Worth putting your chassis number into the BMW recall page and seeing if there are any other recalls on your vehicle. For example, there were three pending recalls on my 1M . . .

Takata airbag
Battery terminal line
CV joint.

I'm getting all three addressed at BMW North Shore in four weeks time.
