    I had the same problem

    I cant recall at this time if the car was under warranty but i contacted BMWUSA directly and they arranged for my local dealer to repair it. My wife was riding shotgun but fortunately wasn't injured.

    BMW does not care unless

    you are under warranty.

    Please post how much this costs you to fix. I am curious - thanks!

    Sorry to hear this, too.

    Help BMW NA! Airbag deployed unintentionally!

    Here's hoping BMW NA has someone that follows these boards.
    Last night, the driver side curtain airbag deployed for no reason. I was still able to operate the vehicle so I drove home. When I arrived at my apartment, I checked the outside of the vehicle and there is absolutely no damage. I thought perhaps an animal may have run into the side of my vehicle causing the airbag to deploy, but there was no damage whatsoever to indicate that any type of collision had occurred.

    I've done some research and it seems lots of people had this issue when they ran through a pothole but I didn't run through a pothole. There have also been other accounts where it just deploys for no reason. I was on a well paved highway and boom it popped.

    Anyone got some advice?
