new m5 owner in need of help?! Thanks

Doug Here in San Diego. This site has been very helpful the past few months as I have located and purchased my first m5. a 2002 with 3,000 miles! Imagine that. The warrenty runs out in 3 weeks. (purchased new in October 2001). The dealership in New Mexico (where I bought the car) is suggesting an extended warrenty of 4 years/48 thousand miles from now from the company JMandA. It has a cost of $3090. I understand that I can't buy the extended warrenty from BMW, as I'm not the original owner. Your thoughts/experience of these aftermarket warrenties/ JMandA?

Also, is the 2002 bluetooth ready, if not, how much to upgrade?

And it came with factory chromed wheels, I would rather have alumunim. Anyone in San Diego/LA want to trade?

THanks
Doug

You bought it from a BMW dealer and they didn't let you buy a cpo warranty for $1300??? Aholes. (Only excuse is they weren't a BMW dealer.

Search here for extended warrantys- hundreds of posts on the various companies and relative merits. Your state of residence is a BIG factor.

never heard of JMandA


Congrats!

Welcome and congratulatons!

I can't help you on the warrantee issue, but you should do a search as it is a popular topic.

I think the '02 is Bluetooth ready but needs a kit. This has been discussed, so I would recommend a search for this as well.

Hello Doug,
I have a Jet Black 2002. What color is your car? I have thought about Chrome for the wheels, but am not sure. (I also just got my car and haven't had a chance to really get used to it as I've been traveling so much that I have only driven the car 2 weeks.)

By Aluminum, did you mean the stock Shadow Chrome?
Regards,
Alfred

Doug,

I have a suggestion: get in contact with the original owner, and ask that person to help you get the BMW warranty.

Are you the seond owner of the car?

yes, I'm the second owner. So I can't get an official BMW warranty, as far as I understand. Its also purchased private party. I'm essentially decided to buy an aftermarket warranty...
