My question is, has anyone tried to get this update covered under a CPO warranty? The original warranty is out but I'm on CPO for another year. A quick call to one of the BMW dealers gave me a quote of almost $400 to do the update and said it would take all day. I'm interested in getting it but seems like a "power train" issue which the CPO warranty SHOULD cover. Just wondering how hard it's going to be to convince BMW of that.


The dealer should be able to cover it for you. I had mine done under factory warranty, however.
