In extreme cold temperatures, ie. colder than -30 C, we have had issues with the urea delivery system freezing up (exact same issue with our Mercedes ML320 Bluetec).

We've also make sure all of the recalls have been performed as there are multiple emissions issues. My opinion is that our cold weather has contributed to many of the exhaust problems. Again the Mercedes was no better, but at least our service experience with Calgary BMW has been exceptional.
I just bought it and would like to hear the potential issues if u care to share I bought it in Calgary and will be garaged always. What's up with the urea system? Anything else to look out for?
