We’ve reported that BMW was fighting this recall (for obvious reasons). Now it would seem they’ve finally succumb to the NHTSA’s pressure. Here’s an excerpt from the NHTSA (sorry for the all caps – that’s how they roll in the US government apparently):
> BMW IS RECALLING 28,450 MY 2007-2008 MINI COOPER S VEHICLES. THE CENTRALLY LOCATED TAILPIPE EXTENSION PROTRUDES SLIGHTLY BEYOND THE REAR BUMPER. IT IS POSSIBLE FOR INADVERTENT CONTACT TO OCCUR WITH A PERSON’S LEG.
