It is charges like these that they slide in underneath a recall that make me consider purchasing a different vehicle in the future.
Ridiculous, if not illegal under recall rules, unless they have uncovered a completely unrelated problem. Needless to say, I would be on the phone with BMW NA without delay...and perhaps NHTSA also.
