The Heating Element On My 2004 bmw X3 Caught On Fire While I Was Driving. I Don’t Use It Often, But Had Noticed A Hot Smell When I Did Use It And That It Would Be Too Warm In The Lumbar And Hip Region. The Fire Actually Burned About A Dime Size Hole In The Driver Side Left Seat Panel (under The Thigh). After Reading Of Many Others Having The Same Or Worse Experiences, I Am Glad I Immediately Shut If Off, Although It Still Burned All The Way Through The Leather. Please Advise Me Of Next Steps I Should Take. I Have Shut Off The Heater And Will No Longer Use It. With So Many Complaints, I Would Think This Would Result In A Recall. Thanks For Your Advice.
