Got vehicle warranty inquiry....is all you need...verified with RIV before....and confirmed it...
Some dealerships in US will try and sell you recall letter....don't know if they are uninformed or trying to scam 500 bucks....tell them you want vehicle warranty inquiry....
Border took 2 minutes at US side.....10 minutes on Canadian side....NO PROBLEMS AT ALL....just make sure you have paper work and be organized...
So much cheaper....it only makes sense.
Just a reminder, as mentioned in the article, never call BMW. Also never ask for a recall clearence report, ask for the Vehichle Service Inquiry, its just as good and does not require BMWNA.
It is also a fair request as buyer trying to assess the cars past. I will be emphasizing this in part 2.
Thank you for all the compliments.
