Yes,

I had a call today (UK). Should BMW provide a 4 wheel alignment after the component has been replaced? Before this recall, I had been experiencing rattling/vibration which BMW could not explain, so suggested I pay for alignment...

Has anyone heard anything further on this? I am hearing that BMW are still trying to identify a fix.

Also, so we know if itís all G20s during that period or just some?

FIX TBD still.

Doesn't seem like a huge recall. As of today, there are about 1045 affected for all of Canada for 330, M340 and Z4 models.

Thanks! Iím hoping they identify a fix soon, but maybe the relatively small number of cars affected (plus COVID) explains the delay.

Just checked for this on the BMW website and it seems my car is one of those affected but as we are still in lockdown here I can't book the car in as yet.
