1. It is a fact that BMW warranty will not apply in CERTAIN circumstances:

This warranty shall be null and void if the
Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) has been
altered or cannot be read, if the odometer has
been replaced or altered and the true mileage
cannot be determined, if the vehicle has been
declared a total loss or sold for salvage
purposes, or if the vehicle has been used in
any competitive event.
You are not clear in terms of WHAT "brand" is on your title....

2. BE AWARE that other warrantors may have similar exclusions and ASKING them is a poor way to become informed. You must ask to see the actual policy. Not the brochure. I actually say "I want the document that does NOT SAY "see the ___ for more details"...when you get to the final document it will NOT say that.

3. I dont have a cpo or BMW extended warranty handy- so you should read those too. #1 is from the original new car warranty.

4. Once you pass the 4 year mark, you may be VERY limited in choices.
OE is Original Equipment: aka 'BMW Original Parts"; aka "What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label on it"

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER 'the company that made the OE part" or.... 'A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label,"
