@Jashearer ... thanks for the heads up. Since I have a few weeks before the original manufacturer warranty expires, I will be performing my due diligence.

From what I have gathered so far, I am *not* eligible for a CPO (expected as much) given the branded title - regardless of the reason behind the brand.

That said, I am still eligible for a BMW extended and/or maintenance plan. I am looking primarily at the extended plans, as I do not put enough miles on the vehicle to justify the maintenance offering.

Also, it appears that dealers in particular locales work with different 3rd-party warranty providers. In the Midwest, EasyCare and Compass seem big ... on the West Coast, Wells and Zurich appear to be popular.

I haven't yet gone through and compared the T&C's of the BMW offered plan versus those from 3rd-parties that dealers have quoted me (that's an activity for this evening). Once I do, I'll share what I learn and solicit feedback from the forum.
