will bmw replace recalled airbags that already went off/popped?

i went over a curb at around 15mph and the airbags ended up popping with little to no damage to the car. car drives fine and nothing looks damaged besides scratches on the front bottom but the airbags ended up going off. i never reported it to my insurance and the title is still clean but the airbags already had a recall, would bmw replace them with the recall even if they went off? i’ll probably take it to get inspected by a mechanic soon but it drove home straight and fine after it happened

    If the airbags deployed and are no longer functional, your car will not pass inspection. The airbags will have to be replaced.

    The airbags didn't deploy because of a recall by BMW. The airbags deployed because you drove over a  curb with enough force  and at a high-enough speed to cause them to deploy. BMW's airbag recall isn't responsible for your carelessness. The airbags in your car worked the way they were intended to work.

    Sure. Expect to pay the full price; as they do sell them. Why they recalled them - THAT you have to find out from them.  Many had the Jakarta bags that also flung out pieces of plastic(a safety hazard).  If that is the reason, then you are paying full price for a replacement bag.  If the recall was because of premature ejaculation, then hitting the curb(I would classify that as such, unless that curb was 3 feet high and hit the front bumper(then that was a collision)with the bumper.

    I am just guessing...you got to talk to the MAN.

    You can ask, but it;s doubtful. Their responsibility for the possibly defective airbags ended when they functioned as intended.

    A LOGICAL AND INTELLIGENT PERSON WHO DOESN'T HAVE TELEPHONE ANXIETY WOULD CALL THEM AND ASK.

    If there is a recall, then that is a doable separate free repair. But, the insurance company will handle is as an accident repair claim if you have physical damage coverage.

    Call your insurance company.  Call a dealer.

      @Damon:  The car won't have  salvage Title; not if you have the airbags replaced.
