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?
i took it to carmax, and they're gonna take it to BMW.

MaxCare® Extended Service Plans
All cars occasionally need repair. And while your monthly payment is something you can plan and predict, repair costs can come up any time, without warning. Naturally, the older the vehicle and more mileage it has, the greater the likelihood of a necessary repair.

Finding a car dealership that offers an "auto warranty" on their used cars isn't hard. But finding one that offers an extended service plan that really protects you is nearly impossible. That's why CarMax offers MaxCare.

What is MaxCare?
MaxCare is an extended service plan available on every CarMax used car. For just a few dollars a month, your car is covered by a plan that actually tells you up front what it does and doesn't cover.

Here's what makes MaxCare different:

Cause and effect coverage: If a non-covered part fails as a result of a covered part, the non-covered part will still be repaired and replaced.
Named exclusion policy: Most service plans name the parts they cover, not the ones they don't. MaxCare extended service plans cover all parts of the vehicle except what is specifically excluded.
You get nationwide coverage at any authorized repair facility.
Low deductible per visit, not per repair.
Direct payment is made to the participating service center.
Affordable, flexible payment terms that can be included in your monthly payment.
Towing coverage (see your contract for your towing coverage terms)
Rental reimbursement (see your contract for your rental reimbursement terms)
Comprehensive coverage for your engine, transmission and drive axle, steering, front suspension, brakes, electrical system, electronic system, air conditioning, cooling system, interior and assemblies and controls.
Flexible coverage: You can choose the coverage term (months & miles) that matches your driving needs. And if you sell your car, the coverage is transferable (Some restrictions apply. Please see extended service plan's written policy).

I keep my fingers crossed. Fight them to install a completely new engine and not to rebuild yours like they did with mine
