oil filter housing post warranty repair

Just got quoted from the dealership that my 2012 bmw x5 3.5 has a oil filter housing leak again. The thing is I had this replaced under cpo warranty less than two years ago. Now because I'm out of warranty they won't cover the part because the initial repair wasn't out of pocket! What are my options?

Yeah, they changed that a few years back.

How far out of CPO warranty are you?

Dealers can try and get BMWNA to cover it, but you live in NYC- basically owners are viewed as chumps with wallets.

Also, maybe time to find a good indy?

Oh, you can try telling the SA "you get this covered by BMWNA this 100 bill is yours"

My 2012 E70 XDrive 530i was in for warranty work & the dealer said my oil filter mounting was leaking -$2500-$3000 to repair. I did NOT have the recommended work done. I had NEVER seen or had any oil spots on my garage floor prior to the warranty work, but started seeing occasional spots quarter sized spots soon after the warranty work. I checked for the 'oil leak' myself and quickly found the OIL FILTER COVER to be the source of the leak. The cover was torqued properly, so I bought a new NAPA oil filter (comes with a new 'O-Ring" to seal the cover. That fixed the problem - for several months. But after several months the oil leak around the cover returned. I put on a new oil filter and the problem went away, again, but returned several months later. I've tried using different brands of filters/O-rings with the same results. A new O-ring stops the leak for a few months (about 6-9 months), but the leak will return.

After 'fighting' this 'leak' for about 3 years, I've finally decided to try replacing the Oil Filter Cover (OEM P/N: 11-42-7-525-334).

Anybody else seen this problem? The fix?

Some other thoughts:
There are some folks that have put the large o-ring in the wrong groove.
The cap could be cracked.
There could be a leak coming from the oil filter housing gasket.

the fix is to use a quality german filter, OEM or MANN or MAHLE. others cause leaks

It should cost max $500 to do both OFH gaskets...average is 3-400. Stop going to the dealer now that you’re out of warranty.
