    Can someone check VIN for me for rod bearing service?

    Looking at an '02, dealer only told me about the air bag recall open

    It only applies to the early M-3 like the YM-01's.

    But do get in and get those airbags replaced, for it's free.

    Well I feel very much relieved in knowing I dodged that bullet (or ICBM for that matter) lol. I was kinda dreading dealing with that process.

    Soon as the brake mess is sorted that's my first trip is the dealer to get the airbag's handled. That I know hasn't been done. Which is weird....because this car only went to the dealer for it's oil changes and moderate+ maintenance work....idk why the dealer wouldn't have bothered to do it in one of the 10+ probably times it's been there for oil changes and what not.....

    The airbag recall is only from the past couple of years, so it's new.

    Not trying to threadjack here....
