Take a look at the link and click recalls at bottom: https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/

Called local BMW and was directed to log a request online for a booking for any recalls, and will get in touch. :x

The latest recall affecting the X5 (and others) covers models made from Dec 2013 thru June 2016.

It’s for an issue with the EGR - potential fire risk.

Affected VINs are listed below in the DVSA Recall data....

just booked mine in for the 23rd jan, from what I can understand it's got something to do with the power steering, there's a screw that can come loose and damage the belt, that how it was explained to me.
