That said are the airbags sent out VIN based? That is, is each airbag is assigned to a particular VIN. If so I have a hard time understanding why that is the case. I do that the recall is being processed by location and age of a vehicle as a risk based factor.

To answer my own question via chat with my local dealer. In this case the airbags are tied to a particular VIN as the airbag(s) and controller module are being replaced. So IMHO the only real question is how did the dealer get in front of the line? I.e. who is responsible for prioritizing the VIN ordering?
