yep! might actually be more, have to check the invoice. The labor alone is 5 HOURS!!!!! Part is only about $250 or so. Like we all say, can't own this beast without a warranty. I paid $4200 for the warranty and still need to have $2500 more done to the car to break even. But I guess I'm paying for peace of mind at this point.

How often do fuel injectors go bad? What were the symptoms or code?

Sweet Jesus! Over a grand for 1 injector! 4200 for extended warranty doesn't sound too bad now. Plus, there is a peace of mind, priceless. What are the terms of your warranty?

Oh s***, my aftermarket warranty runs out in july, car at dealer being checked out for any possible last minute fixes under warranty.

a note about after market warranties, I did not understand what a "wrap warranty" meant. it means that the warranty period starts at the point that the car was put into service. I had a 5 yr or 150k warranty. did not realize that the 5 years started when I bought the car, not when I bought the warranty!, As it is I will have about 120k miles when the warranty runs out.

Couldn't have gotten this covered by the CCP?

Already did the CCP a few months back. Just got car back, looks like the LABOR was $775! Injector was $270.90 and some decoupling element was $5.68. $1052 plus tax I guess. My deductible was $50 so no big deal.

I thought you would already get the standard BMW warranty for parts and labor which is 1 year? Oh well no biggie since you had warranty.

They should have done it for nothing if they were replaced recently under ccp.

If they replaced that injector under CPP it is covered by BMW's replacement parts warranty.

It's called BMW fleecing the warranty company. BMW knew they were responsible for the repairs but decided getting paid by the warranty co, that obviously had no clue about CCP, was a much better deal. BMW showing it's true colors, as always.

The failure of the CCP is so prevalent, it even has a name: Post CCP.

Not sure if this applies here, but to clear up some info on warranty coverage for replaced parts - if the parts are replaced under the original warranty, they are covered until that warranty expires and not past that. If you are already out of warranty, then the parts are covered under a full 2 year warranty. In other words - I had a bunch of stuff replaced at 48k miles. Those parts are covered for 2k miles and not one mile more. This was verified at multiple levels at my dealership when I raised a stink about it.

If you think all the fixes with the CCP are good for at least 2 years, think again. It all depends on your mileage and warranty when it was fixed.

So in the case of the CCP, it's better to be out of the standard 5yr/50k miles warranty when the CCP is performed. This way you have the 2yr warranty coverage for all CCP related issues, is that correct?

That's exactly what I was told by multiple layers at the dealership, although they did say that BMW is determined to stand behind these particular repairs - but I'm not holding my breath. If I was at 50,001 miles instead of 48,000 I'd get a lot more assurances.

once again, make sure you're always under some type of warranty on these cars.
