    Apparently, the front axle might not have been made to spec...

    There is already a thread on this.

    I didn't see "front axle" in the notice, but I did see axle shaft.

    Did I miss something or do you know something?

    I'm not sure what else "Axle shaft" would refer to, the recall wording seems quite clear to me: "Axle" vs "Axle Shaft" = same thing.

    The recall is for model year 2008. The U.S. does not have a model year 2008 as far as I know, it is only 2009. I sent an email to my BMW dealer to see what they say.
