If the AC system needs freon, it means there is a leak in the system. It needs to be located and repaired.,
Take the car in to the dealer, and use that CPO warranty

You need to read the small print of your plan, as all maintenance plans are not created equal. Still, I think this problem should be covered.

if you got the car with a CPO warranty plan from a BMW dealership, the only things you would have to worry about are tire wear, wheel alignment, and your battery. don't worry, bring it in!

You should just contact the dealership and tell them what's going on and have them inspect the car. People on here will tell you on thing or another which is good, but at the end of the day, the dealership basically has the final say. You have the coverage find out from them. Now if they give you a hard time, people here can try to help you determine what to do next.

Good luck.

Extended MAINTENANCE would NOT cover this.

Extended WARRANTY (like CPO) WILL cover this.

Is your CPO still good?
If not, I have some recommendations...
