Exclamation Warranty only covering Remanufactured Transmission?

What should I do guys? I am confused as to how my extended warranty can get away with putting a remanufactured Transmission in the car. My concerns are where is the transmission coming from, can the remaf trans hurt resale value and do I have a leg to stand on to make them pay the 7k for a new BMW transmission?

They basically are agreeing to $4,772.50 for a remanufactured transmission or they will contribute that to a new transmission from BMW priced at $7,079.79+tax. The difference to me being $2,307.29 plus tax/deductible/shop fees.

Our goal is to sell after this so what would you guys do? Anyone have any experience with a remanufactured transmission?

I need to let dealership know which route we are taking asap.

the remanuf. transmission will likely come from a trans shop that specializes in rebuilding them. The new trans from BMW will def. be a better option but I don't think it is for the money. Let the warranty put in the remanufactured one and go from there. While they are paying for the labor to pull the trans, get any other work you want done so the labor will be reduced!

Thank you Csmeanace I am having service advisor verify but we think the remanufactured transmission would come with a 2 year warranty and we will not have the car that long so it may be the way to go.

Guyver626 it is Easy Care and we have stated car coverage. They just covered about $9,000 in repairs this past month but car had to go back in as the disk they replaced in trans did not fix the kicking.
