BMW is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 1-Series coupes and convertibles manufactured December 2007 through July 2011; and 2007-2011 3-Series coupes and convertibles manufactured March 2007 through July 2011; 2007-2011 3-Series sedans manufactured March 2007 through October 2011; 2007-2011 3-Series sports wagons manufactured March 2007 through June 2011; and 2009-2011 Z4 vehicles manufactured March 2009 through June 2011.

The connector for the positive battery cable connector and the corresponding terminal on the fuse box may degrade over time. Over time, the high current flow and heat from electrical resistance may lead to a breakage of the connection, and a loss of electrical power to the vehicle.

No, it's already gone .

Now, having shimmied it a bit, you're probably fine. But that total power loss can happen at any time including while driving. There are a few documented accounts on the forum of minor accidents and near-misses as a result (luckily nothing big that I know of). If you can, see if they'll comp you a tow to the dealership. If they won't, it's probably no big deal, just drive cautiously and in the right lane. If they will, better safe than sorry.
