The "admissibility" letter has been discontinued. BMW was sued and dropped this illegal requirement. You still have to pay for the recall letter.

The cluster change by a BMW dealership is MANDATORY or else they won't honour the warranty. Canadian dealerships also won't issue the recall letter if you don't do the swap so the only way of getting it is from a US BMW dealership. The only light at the end of the tunnel is that the Registrar of Imported Vehicles will soon be obtaining recall information from a third party source, hopefully doing away with the need for manufacturer recall clearance letters.

CPO is NOT honoured in Canada, only the original factory warranty.
