Smile 03 745Li Warranty, Bluetooth, and Sirius Help Please

Hello all , we just got a 2003 745li and it is in the shop now been there since Wednesday , and I am missing our new car that we have not made our first payment on yet, As you can see I have posted in prior post about the problems that we am having , so I will not go into that if you like you can read the prior post, It did not come with the blue tooth phone and when I ask the dealer they told me it was over $ 400.00 , they want to charge us for every thing , not to mention we paid over 2,000 for a extend warranty and a dent and scratch removal warranty or what ever they call it , We also have had Sirius and I truly miss it a lot , We asked them about getting that put in they said 500.00 to 600.00 , also went to drivers set and they told us $ 800.00 . My husband has a 2007 Corvette that came with XM and he fixed it to take Sirius but when we ask at getting it in 745li the price is just to high on top of everything Else they want to charge does anyone now how we could get these a little cheaper also how do you know that you have a certified BMW I don't see this anywere on our paper work ,also on the paper they had the wrong mileage on the car it has 33,000 and they had 53,000 and it also stated that the warranty was up march 3,2008 so when I called to check on the car yesterday I gave them the correct Miles on the car , They have the car there so I have no idea why they had the wrong mileage , I thought that BMW had a 100, mile warranty and we got the extended warranty so I have no idea why they say the warranty is up . any ideas anyone .
thanks Lisa

02 and 03 should have a 100k mile CPO warranty from BMW. Those cars are known for having alot of problems hence BMW offering the CPO warranty on the first two model years.

Lisa, not trying to rain on your parade, but you don't buy a seven with the approach that it will never be in the shop, especially a 2003. You should have gotten a Lexus if this is what you wanted. You will be a regular at the dealer for hopefully only small things.

+1 research on these cars is very important before buying.

research is a must with the E65/66. the bluetooth kit ( cpt 9000 ) you can buy from ebay for about $200... if youy want Sirius radio you have to look for a aftermarket solution. and your factory waranty should be up sometime in 2009 not 08.
