Headlight recall?

My indy today said he believes that there is a bmw recall for headlights because of the biodegradable wiring. Anyone hear of this?

That would be awesome, as I have spent about 2 hours rewrapping mine already!

I wish there was. I sincerely doubt it will happen. It would not only involve BMW but Hella. If they did it for BMW, then Mercedes, Volvo and Audi will also want it done. Not likely! I took my car to a auto/marine wiring company and they spent a week replacing all the wires. What a total mess they were...bare copper everywhere. Now all seems fine and no codes thrown

It did take BMW a long time to issue the taillight recall so maybe they will recall the headlights. They should because so may people are having wire issues.
