Munich. In a safety-related recall, the BMW Group is replacing a variant of an airbag sensor.

The owners of the vehicles affected will be informed without delay. The repair (carried out at a BMW Partner) will take approximately three hours and is free of charge for the customer. The affected customers will be provided with an alternative mobility service.

As a result of a software error in the production of a sensor at the supplier, incorrect data is sent to the airbag control unit in a longitudinal front-end or rather rear-end collision. This can result in the airbag not deploying safely.

The vehicles affected are approximately 33,600 7 Series, 5 Series GT and Rolls-Royce Ghost cars built from 12/2011 to 06/2012. Furthermore, a faulty replacement part was fitted in approximately 650 vehicles. These cars are also covered by the recall.

Customers can find out whether their vehicle is affected by contacting a BMW Service Partner or check directly by entering their vehicle’s chassis number at the following website:

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
