"Recalls begin Dec 18" - Merry Christmas!

By Dec 20th, Canada will be out of stock of the replacement parts, just watch, relax, and try not to catch fire.

Has BMW Canada even announced this recall yet? The article makes it seem like these two recalls only apply to the US.

FWIW looks like they have:

"Recall Campaign No. 2017-470: blow-by heater (11 85 17RC)"

You can punch in your VIN here to confirm whether your car is affected:

Transport Canada has had this up since late September

The second recall isn't listed on the website.

Wow. This actually happened to me. Started the car one day and noticed a lot of smoke entering the cabin. Popped the hood and the heater core was burning a hole in my intake Manifold. Dealer replaced the Manifold and the heater. Been a few years since then.
