BMW Canada is probably going to tell you to call the dealer. I called BMW USA and that's what they told me. The HQ office doesn't deal with parts.

We have a brutal cold snap coming through this coming week. A buddy grabbed a magnetic block heater for me to borrow. Since it obviously won't stick to an aluminum block, I'm just going to stack some cinder blocks under the engine block and put the heater on them. Even if I can get the block up just a couple of degrees it will make a big difference. I may even try to old ghetto fabulous trick of sticking a light bulb under there too.
