She didn't know........and that was the way she ended the conversation.

I'm assuming MY car and any of the "American" cars (discussed and pictured, above) were all manufactured in the same factory...and I was also of the impression that ALL 2004 325i's supplied to North America were affected.

Am I wrong on both counts? Any follow-up, especially from anyone with a TSB number or experience with performing this fix in Canada, greatly appreciated!

I'm in Canada (BC) and have a 2004 325i. Never rec'd a recall notice but when I asked to set up an appointment at the dealer's (suspension inspection) I was told there was a recall on my car for the taillights and they would do that while the car was in.

I aleady did the DIY repair but figured they may as well go in there and replace the parts. It's free and the car will be in there anyways.

I'm not a pessimist. At some point the world sh!ts on everybody. Pretending it ain't sh!t makes you an idiot, not an optimist.
