    300K recall in EU and 100K in Korea. Apparently 17 owners filed criminal claims against BMW for delay in recall

    So concern seems to be over fire and explosions, it seems to be related to emission recirculation and diesels. Kind of wondering if this was a scandal that was brewing and that is why there was so much BS in the news about Telsa and fires until Tale Nassim pointed out that in the case of Tesla it was utter BS. Was this BMW's VW diesel gate in the making and they were doing something offensive? I've wondered too why the Trump admin was so bent on pushing Tariffs on German cars and assumed it was because they were frustrated Germany wasn't pro fossil fuel enough but now I wonder if it had something to do with Tesla.

    Another BMW recall of similar magnitude was over sudden stalling due to electrical problems and sudden loss of power and stalling that apparently caused death and accidents.
