2006 BMW X3 Seat Warmer

Hi everyone,
Just like the person in 2009 posted, I was driving my X3 with the seat warmer on and noticed a sharp hottness on my left cheek. I thought how warm the seat warmer was getting for some reason. I looked down and there was smoke with a mini flame underneath the now hole in my leather seat. I pulled over turned the heater off and blew on the hole. It burned a hole in my workout pants too. I am about to take this to the dealership, but was hoping someone could tell me if this has happened to anyone else since the 2009 posting by one individual. I am so mad and the dealership said the extended warranty will not cover it (which I do not have anyways) since it is interior!

Thanks for the help
