Wink New Gawker of a 2012 328 E93

(Gawker because it will be wife's car).

It has about 22 months of warranty.

Was wondering what all I should get checked out (the CPO checklist is kind of a hit-or-miss).

I did hear some squeaks when the top went up.

Now is the "top lube/service" something covered by the original warranty/maintenance plan?

This forum contains a mother lode of what-to-look-for information!

Just SEARCH for that - many recent inquiries serve to fill you in. Voilą!

Oh I highly doubt it, and even if it was, I would be very adamant about doing it myself and not letting them touch it. Make a very modest expenditure, save yourself time with the driving and waiting, and know that it was a job well done with TLC!

In case you missed it, there has been a sticky here regarding the top's care for a long time now. http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=609222

It was that sticky which told me to look at for the sounds.
