Don't know about recalls, but BMW uses GM 6L80E automatic transmissions. These clunkers were built to carmakers' specifications by GM for MANY manufacturers, including BMW, Honda, Sterling, Rolls Royce...you get the picture.
These transmissions are mechanical and eletrical/electronic nightmares which fail frequently. Many of the problems lie in the carmakers' specifications, asking the thing to do way too many cutesy things to convey a sense of luxury, power, and superiority. They have way too many parts for the task of moving an automobile, and when they fail, they frequently go into a pre-programmed "Limp Home" mode, allowing the use of one forward gear only at a low speed.
BMW is a fine automobile; too bad they over-engineered and contracted out the transmissions.

no the spindle stays on the vehicle,this process is not that difficult.start by removing the wheels and 38mm nut at the end of each shaft,then reomve the bolt holding on the front lower control arm from the front sub frame,pressout the shaft through the wheel bearing,now that the end of the shaft is out use a pry bar to pop out the shaft in the oil pan,pull them out and replace, Also you must be aware that removeing the 38mm nut is difficult without a impact gun and it is also a 12 point nut as well you must force out the ends of the drive shaft with a special puller of a air chistle with a point as you are not able to push it through by hand good luck
