It was a Priority 1 option that was officially available for a short time. However, it has remained an option in Europe and numerous Bimmerfesters have gotten it approved as a special request option....

One small note about courtesy delivery - dealers may or may not agree to do one, they're not required to do them, and they very well may charge a fee to do one, typically $500 - $1,000.

BMWFS will offer the car to the dealer for quite a bit less than the contracted residual. So, you should be able to work a deal with your dealer to buy the car from them for less than the residual.

You should get them to CPO Elite the car. The maintenance and warranty clock started the day the car went into service as a loaner, not the mileage and day you buy the car.

1). It's a good deal. Is the car CPO Elite? Most loaners are.

2). No big benefit to paying fees and taxes upfront, except you don't pay interest on them.

I'm not sure it matters very much for the regular CPO coverage. I've never seen anyone post with CPO repairs that began to approach the value of the car.

That sucks. Paintless dent removal can probably get that out. A body shop might be able to touch it up to make it almost unnoticeable.

+1, the purpose of the warranty is to address manufacturing defects. I'm not sure what writing a letter accomplishes.

Also, on cars that didn't have auto dimming mirrors turning the clown nose was how you switched from day mode to night mode.
