ha, this is true! But if I didn't have a warranty I would have had all that work done at an indie and not the dealer so the overall cost of repairing myself would have been less.

One advantage that should be mentioned is that when you have CPO you get the work done at the dealer. Sometimes indie shops aren't as capable, I am not sure an indie would have figured out the dash cluster problem. It took the dealer 4 days of scoping the Fiber Optic lines to find what was causing my car to go crazy.

Also, while my car is at the dealer, I get a free loaner car! I can't tell you how important this is since the 6 is a daily driver for my Wife.

Once in a while, someone does have an engine replacement on the CPO. One should look a them the same as you look at the Jackpot winner in a casino. Lucky, not smart.
You are correct there, once the factory warranty is over so is the free oil, brakes, and microfilter. No matter what car I own I will have tires, brakes, battery, fuids, so I really don't count that in my assumptions about the car ownership and CPO coverage.

My experience was very good with the CPO program, they never denied coverage on an item that was in the included list, it was clean and painless.

If the OP is looking at an aftermarket extended warranty and not BMW CPO then coverage and ease of claims vary by company.
