Try to get BMW to cover all or part of the cost under "Good Will". They did that for me and I was a year out of warranty.

This stuff is really expensive! This is bringing the total to over $4,000!
Shouldn't a catalytic converter be covered by the Federal Emissions Warranty which as I recall is 70,000 miles?

Interesting my Fob will only open the windows with unlock button. However It won't close the windows with the lock button. I have to use the key in the door to do that.
