Sorry,, meant to quote referencing the Carly adapter. Though, with new phones dropping the headphone jack I may need to research BT to replace my aux in.

Terry, do you know how I can find out the details of the recalls on my car, including the directions they follow to make the fix?

Sorry, I see your username and still immediately think "wagon".

Any dealer can run a vehicle history report, which will either say "no open campaigns" if no recalls are pending, or a list of them if there are. I think this now happens when they wave the key over the reader, which gives the system your VIN. Dealers normally print this out and attach it to the work ticket, so the trick is to ask them to save it for you. Back in the day, there were people over at the 'fest that would run one for you, but I haven't been there in ages. Unless everyone using my defect code lookup tool is a dealer, some people must still be getting them.

The campaign info (and everything else available outside the BMW dealer net) is available at BMW TIS EPA, but that's a paid service (daily / monthly / yearly for $25 / $250 / $2500).

Could go with Indigenous People's Day if you'd prefer.

Might be a good day for me to go out and stare at this engine sitting on my garage floor.

But my wife (fed govt) and kids (public school in VA) still get the day off, so I guess it's worth something.

For whatever reason we don't get the day off, despite being basically tied to the fed gov't in every other aspect of scheduling. Though we don't get Veterans/Armistice Day off, either, I guess because we hate the troops.

Made an on-line appointment one week in advance. Dropped it off only to find out a few hours later that the 1 M requires an airbag that they didn't have in stock, and the proper one will take two to three weeks to order. Bummer. It's been over a year, so what's another 3 weeks.

Got a 430iX as a loaner. Wow, major turbo lag on initial throttle and the suspension is way too softly damped, plus the steering feel was numb and artificial (redundant observation). Another totally forgettable piece of crap from the Bavarian's.
