Fortunately, when I purchased the car, the dealer did an inspection and CPO'ed the vehicle, including the oil change.

Even though my car will be covered with CPO, I know factory warranty is a lot more comprehensive than CPO warranty. So here I am with my 328 nearing the end of factory warranty, I'm debating whether I should take it to the indy mechanics and have it inspected.

If the indy mehcnic (that is knowledgable about BMWs) finds some parts that need replacing, I'll be able to go to the dealership and have it replaced - including some parts that may not be included under the CPO.

But since this car has just been inspected for CPO (it only took them 1 day so I don't know if this was thorough inspection), I'm not sure if taking it to the mechanics is worth the effort.

Can I hear some advice from experiend owners of E90 ?

Thanks in advance!

A thorough inspection from time to time always a good move. In your case, timely, too.
