Summary:
      BMW of North America, LLC "BMW" is recalling certain model year 2015 X3 and X4 Sports Activity Vehicles manufactured July 28, 2014 to July 29, 2014.

Consequence:
      The driver may not notice that vehicles viewed in the mirror are closer than they appear, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's side exterior rearview mirror, free of charge. The recall began on December 16, 2014. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417 or CustomerRelations"bmwusa.com.
