In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents dated Sept. 27, BMW initiated a recall campaign for faulty backup cameras that, in total, affects 51 different models and their variants. The final number of cars in the recall population sits at 257,481. Everything from the 2018-2019range, 2019-2020 , , , and more are part of the recall. Even the new and are named.

BMW owners of the various cars included will also receive notices starting on the same date. The only difference between the Supra and Bimmer owners? They have different customer service numbers to dial, should they want more information.
