The OP needs to gather other '06 owners info and formally request the NHSTA to expand the VIN range of the recall. Not much else is going to change anything. Perhaps if you bug BMWNA enough, you will "miraculously" find your VIN in the included range.
OP is from canada, NHSTA and BMWNA won't listen to him. He needs to speak to BMW Canada or the NHSTA equivalent in Canada... but he already said he doesnt want to speak to the govt.
