I started very nicely asking her about the extended warranty that BMWNA had extended for our 335's and would that also be covered in Canada. She cut me off halfway through speaking and barked how the only was it would be covered or replaced was if I received a letter from BMW stating they would honor the warrenty for my wastegates because each 'recall is specific to each VIN'. Which is complete bullshit because BMWNA offered a blanket extended warranty for any 335 made in 2007 or newer. I went on to explain it was a little rediculous because other than the instrument cluster and DRL the Canadian and US cars were identical and it should be covered as well in Canada. She then rudely went on how I wasn't listening to what she was saying which is where I started to get a little upset. I pressed her a little more, did not swear or yell at any time but I did press her for an answer and she actually hung up on me.
Great way to keep customers.
Read post #155, for the U.S., your VIN has to be covered under the extended wastegate warranty. So there was some truth to what the BMW Canada rep told you over the phone. It looks like there is no blanket warranty that applies to all models with the turbos.
