I'm considering a 535 CPO with relatively high miles. Enough that the CPO will only last about a year. Is that something I need to worry about considering the HPFP issues? I'll still be financing long after the CPO is complete. Thanks.

Ask to see the maintenance records. If the oil drain intervals followed BMW's CBM program trouble could be brewing in the future.

My 2009 had its hpfp replaced at 13,900. Have 47,000 now not had an issue since replacement and BMW warranties the hpfp to 10 yrs, 100,000 mi.

Are these cars ok to finance or did you buy cash. I'd have to finance to make it work out

What is the mileage on the car you're considering?

I purchased a used 07 525i back in 2009 that had 57k on it and now have 76k on it; non CPO unit. Biggest out of pocket expenditures so far: $800 for front brakes/rotors and $350 for new battery and programming.

I used my HELOC (Home Equity LOC) to purchase, as its tax deductible and I could vary my payments when needed.

Looking at one at 55k miles. Short CPO period, but decent price.

Also, do any of you have a problem with buying a CPO car that was registered initially in the NE (snow, ice, salt concerns).

Thanks.

Uh yeah they are ok to finance why wouldn't they be? I financed mine through BMW with 0.9% interest for 4 years.

My 08 535xit has the warranty on the HPFP extended to 10yr/125k miles -- However if your vehicle has the latest generation HPFP the reliability seems to be much better then older generations.

If you will keep it beyond CPO period I would make sure you have a good indy who can help with wear and tear parts because using the BMW dealer will be expensive. Even with CPO things like electronics aren't included, the CPO is basically disaster prevention.
