100,000 mile warranty

I have a 100,000 mile warranty on my x5 2008 and the dealer has indicated my catalytic convertors need to be replaced due to my engine lights coming on. What is the extent of the 100,000 mile warranty?

Catalytic converters are covered by a federally mandated warranty (sorry, can't remember the exact mileage limit).
But they should also be covered under the 100k warranty too.

I believe Catalytic Converters are covered for 8 yrs and/or 80,000 miles. The op should check his warranty manual.
