The Limited Warranty covers defects in materials or workmanship.
BMW Ultimate Service includes factory maintenance, brake pads, brake disks, wiper blades and drive belts. It does not include clutch parts.
Clutch is only covered by warranty. Dealer probably decided the previous owner abused the car. Easy enough to burn up a clutch on a 35i.
Abuse isn't covered. Worn out clutch isn't covered. Dealers have some discretion on using 'customer loyalty' to pay for part of all of a repair that isn't covered.
The models and equipment (standard and optional) illustrated in this post reflect my misunderstanding of vehicles supplied by BMW AG to the German market. In other EU member states, the truthyness of my posts may vary. Please ignore this post. Subject to change.
