Have a 2011 X5 35d; no notification.

I'm glad BMW is owning up to their inferior quality product and covering it under warranty. I wish they did the same for other such parts/cases.

In TX, no state tax. I checked with them, quote is valid till 12/14.

DCU was totally un-helpful, said you have to have a loan with us.

PenFed guy had no idea about EEP/Diesel.

......and then call your local credit union to buy the Route 66 warranty. With people specifically mentioning it's reputation, it won't harm to have route66 by your side.

I did PPI at Pepboys once when I bought a used Accord from a dealer long time back. I guess the charge back in 2004-4 was still $100 or so.

Thanks. How much did you end up paying?

Want to check before I waste time on PenFed/DCU. If it's a small amount, not worth the hassle; If it's 400-500...I'll spend some more time on this.
