    we may have to watch for recalls on the other cars in our garages.... This from USAToday last week:

    DETROIT – Takata is recalling 10 million more front air bag inflators sold to 14 different automakers because they can explode with too much force and hurl shrapnel.

    The recall is the last one the bankrupt company agreed to in a 2015 settlement with the U.S. safety regulators. It could bring to a close the largest series of automotive recalls in U.S. history.

    The 10 million inflators are part of the approximately 70 million in the U.S. that Takata was to recall as part of the agreement with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

    Vehicles made by Audi, BMW, Honda, Daimler Vans, Fiat Chrysler, Ferrari, Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen are affected.

    Automakers will determine what models are affected and launch their own recalls. Some already have made the announcements.

    I've downloaded and attached the recall from BMWUSA. It has a FAQ portion that isn't included in the download from NHTSA

    I got the same thing from Carfax. Pretty sure the prior owner did the Takata recall before I bought the car but not where I can confirm right now.

    This is a new recall to replace the defective airbags that they installed as a result of the last recall. Can't make it up...
    ------------------
    Summary


    BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2000-2005 323iT, 325iT, 325xiT, 320i, 323i, 325i, 325xi, 328i, 330i and 330xi and 2000-2006 323Ci, 325Ci, 328Ci, 330Ci, M3 Coupe, 323Cic, 325Cic, 330Cic, and M3 Convertible vehicles equipped with non-desiccated frontal Takata PSAN inflators and PSPI passenger frontal air bag inflators containing phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant that were used as interim remedy parts for previous Takata recalls. These inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures, and high temperature cycling.


    Remedy


    BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger's front air bag, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 6, 2020. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.

    IIRC, It was known that the passenger side was a partial/temporary fix previously and there would be a follow-up fix. Though I could be making stuff up.

    you're not making it up, that was always the plan. From the FAQ's:

    Q4. Why is this recall just coming out now?

    The recall schedule follows the guidelines published by NHTSA in the May 2016 amended Takata Recall Coordinated Remedy Order.

    Q5. If I had my passenger front air bag module replaced prior, do I need to have it replaced again?

    Yes. This final replacement part is ammonium–nitrate free. Please contact your authorized BMW center immediately to schedule an appointment to have this important free repair performed as soon as possible.

    Nobody has reported having it done yet on any of the blogs! Everyone is still in the whining phase!

    I think you may be first in the country!
