I looked at the e93's VIN and it mentions nothing about the steering bag recall that many people were mentioning. Should I go for it, or wait for an LCI e90's airbag? Will the airbag connectors be the same?
The air bag is not coded with a module. I would be shocked if your car did not like the older airbag. The only thing you might want to check is if the electrical connections match up.

You can always get a part number and see if it cross references with an 09.
