Therefore consistently inspecting and re-inspecting objects in your house such as a stove, heater, hair dryer, fireplace, etc. This OCD is now causing a major problem with how you are with your family and friends. You are isolated and can not continue a normal life.

Insurance will pay you! BMW will pay you!

Get a lawyer. And stop talking about this on the forum until its all settled.
You are whats wrong with society, everyone is sue happy and you are the reason rates are.
Whats wrong with just getting a brand new car paid for without suing for emotional distress and other shit.

An expert opinion was needed in this matter. I am not an expert, however i was merely speaking out of knowledge from a few situations that i seen in the past. As an insurance adjuster you are trained to dismiss any claims like this, however you do know the limitations and outcomes that can come out of it.

To the OP, just talk to a lawyer and they will guide you, if in fact you want to recover money.
Again, you're wrong. A fire claim is a first party claim. In other words, it falls entirely within the exact wording of the contract between insurer and insured. In most cases, a total fire claim results in the contractor being obligated to pay fair market value for the vehicle. There may be an additional policy that provides for replacement cost. In both cases, the only thing the OP is entitled to is what that contract says: fair market value; and, if a replacement cost policy exists, the additional indemnity provided for within that contract.

It's pretty clear from the OP's comments that ICBC met those obligations. The insurer has fulfilled its obligations under the contract. Full stop. No further claim exists. There is no legal basis whatsoever for pursuing anything more against the insurance company. In fact, back in my days as an adjuster or claims manager, I would take exactly one call from the lawyer and have a frank discussion. In fact, if a lawyer wasted my time by starting litigation, I would aggressively pursue costs against the OP.

The case against BMW is a little bit different. But, to have any chance of any success, the OP would have to show that the fault that caused the fire was something that BMW knew (or ought to have known) about and did nothing to warn/fix. If it is related to this recall, there's a chance, but I can also tell you that it's a claim that would cost a significant amount of money to pursue and probably not worth litigating.

Man sorry bro, I live in the USA and this would definitely be a sue type of situation with a lawyer foaming at the mouth with this type of evidence and solid records that you have on hand.

I'm looking into an Audi A4 currently as I am quickly loosing faith in my 2nd BMW vehicle.

Water pumps, rattles, vibration issues galore, trans shifting hard again, and list goes on and on...

There's no point getting a lawyer.

I was in a car accident with drivers side impact. My curtain airbags didnt deploy and I found a bunch of articles saying there was a recall on certain E90's where the curtain airbags may not deploy. My lawyer said that BMW will get an army of engineers and lawyers to explain why in my case the airbags didnt deploy. My back/neck/shoulders are messed up and the best thing I was advised to do was pursue a personal injury claim with ICBC and be done with it. Taking on the car compnay will be an exercise in futility.
