I'm confused... did you buy this car from Carmax? I can't imagine why you'd have the car towed there unless that was the case.
Read your paperwork on the warranty, and see if it covers any place (such as a BMW dealership) to work on your car. If so, have it towed there. Those clowns at Carmax wouldn't know how to work on anything more sophisticated than a Camry.
I suspect that if you are 25 as your profile says, that they are or will try to take advantage of your youth. Get someone to help you, someone who can read and understand the warranty fine print and will keep you from having to shell out any more money.
When this all done with, we need to have a discussion about buying cars from Carmax, OK?
