This was all brought on by people looking for pieces to their cars that should have been there but somehow weren’t there when they bought them. Owner’s manuals, first aid kits, tools and more.
I bought my car from Car Source in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comBurbank</st1:City> <st1:State w:st="on">IL</st1:State></ST1. It was advertised as a CPO warranty car. When I bought the car I had no idea of what this really meant. It was advertised as perfect, and most of it was. So I thought nothing could be wrong. The Final Stage resistor needed to be changed, the front brakes and rotors were under spec, and the rear sway bar link and bracket (BROKEN) needed changed. I had no idea of any of this, my fault, because I trailered it 700 miles to MD (where I live) and had it inspected. I asked how a COP car could need these things and they just blew me off. So I called BMWNA. After talking to them I was informed that a non - BMW dealer could in fact sell a car as a CPO (however shady it was) because in a sense it was, however, that title stays with a car until it’s inspected and COP’ed by another BMW dealer. Mine changed hands during this time once making me the third owner, I have taken care of these minor issues, but thought anyone that is unclear of how a CPO car/warranty works should really check it out or buy it from the dealer that CPO’ed it.
