It's my opinion the suspension on the E9x series cars is the problem. While moving to a non-RFT can improve the comfort any such gain is only minimal.

OP...to be clear warranty is not the same thing as maintenance. I say this because BMW's come standard with a warranty and maintenance which expire at the same time. One can purchase extended...

I second this. The vehicle has low miles on it and it doesn't sound like you'll be putting many miles on it over the life of whatever warranty you might buy. Likewise it sounds as if you'll only...

The auto body shop that repaired my BMW did a great job that I couldn't tell it had been repainted. I'm sure if you're knowledgeable about body work one might have found some signs. But to the...

Congratulations! It appears to be a good outcome to a bad situation. I definitely agree with giving positive feedback to those who deserve it and constructive feedback to those who didn't.

When I ordered my new key I didn't have to have the vehicle brought in. All I needed to do was show my registration and that was it.

Do keep in mind that this situation is more the exception and not the rule. It also might have been avoided by having a PPI performed before you purchased the vehicle.

Have you started climbing the ladder at the BMW dealer? While you are not the direct customer for this repair it is your vehicle and it's quite reasonable to expect them to share information with you.

I'm actually surprised the previous owner allowed you to use their plates. That's something I would never do.

Did they tell you everything that they're going to fix?

Unless you want the VW it looks as if the only real option is to have it fixed.

I can't speak for what every warranty covers but maintenance is completely separate from repair work. The very name, warranty, should be enough to assume maintenance is excluded.

With a private party sale it's unlikely you'd have received a warranty of any kind and that they'll pick up the tab for any repair not covered by the warranty.
