Just caught this thread and checked my VIN. Im currently on the Hawaiian Highway on the way to the US. only saw this in the UK checker.
"technicalCampaigns": [
{
"recallType": "no recall",
"defectCode": "0065480300",
"defectCodeDescription": "Retrofitting the receiver audio module",
----
"recallType": "no recall",
"defectCode": "0066570100",
"defectCodeDescription": "Checking the installation of the camera and TRSVC control unit, retrofitting if necessary",
also saw this but vin status is "closed" so looks like this was taken care of already.
"recallType": "no recall",
"defectCode": "STOP021673",
"defectCodeDescription": "G1x G2x G3x G8x F9x Check Installation Camera and Control Unit TRSVC",
"vinStatus": "Closed",
Looks like I dodged this bullet. thank you to the OP and everyone else who posted how to check.

Good decision. You don’t want to buy a new car that is defective.

I wonder if the Kith special editions are also affected…that would s*ck big time and teach BMW lesson going with a street brand.
what does a 'street brand' have to do with faulty products from vendors? is KITH the one supplying the bearing shells?

It's karma—don't mess with the Roundel, as it's sacred.

Would be funny all of the US Kiths have defected engines

I don't think they'll risk having a dealer tech replace main bearings lol it's probably going to require a new bare engine and all the components will be transferred over to it. Sorry for those that have to go through this.

I agree that it is much more cost effective to BMW to just replace the engine rather than pay a dealer to rip the engine apart and with all of the potential problems and future liability for potential mistakes being made on the field. I have personally seen a BMW in the shop under warranty with a transmission failure and alongside the car a brand new transmission in a crate ready to go in.

FWIW

I do feel your pain and concern though. I would need a bucket of Xanax to cope, just sayin.

You do realize the B58 had this recall shortly after launch as well, correct? They had a manufacturing issue with the thrust bearing. It was a simple inspection and if there was damage, you replace the engine. If there was no damage you replaced the thrust bearing, which was very simple with the engine in the car.

Everyone losing their mind here is comical. There's no repair process or inspection available.

Relax ladies and gentlemen. These cars will be fine.

Agreed 100%. The more focused question is who is the supplier of these bearings and why BMW and the supplier cannot figure out how to agree on manufacturing specifications and quality control process.

In this age of space travel, bearing issues … ???

I love this guy ! if only you saw some of these letters it would have you on the floor

But seriously people all products have a certain failure rate. BMW is required by law/NHTSA to post information like this in a certain time frame. This is why you see a recall post without all the information. Let’s wait and see it could be something as simple as a check with no major repairs needed and BMW as usual is just going to error on the side of caution.

If this is a crankwalk issue, you can read about it, online. Thrust bearing failures, are the absolute biggest pain in the ass, ever. If you followed DSMs, back in the 1990s, you would have known that dealers were replacing thrust bearings on their 4G63 motors, and they would last a few thousand miles, and walk, again.

There were entire race shops that would absolutely not build one of these motors, even if you were replacing the crank, rods, and pistons, with something they sold, because they still walked.

And whats crazy is, they didnt start having the problem until the motors were older, usually more than 40K miles, but once the first one walked, people were having the motors rebuilt, under warranty, 2-3 times, because they just kept crankwaking.

They were literally rebuilding motors that hadnt crank walked, strengthening the bottom end with forged components, and putting the motor back in the car, and it would crankwalk, even after the stock motor had never done it. I hope this isnt a thrust bearing issue we are going to be chasing for years to come. I know, calm down, we dont know what the deal is, Im just sharing a story.
