extended warranty - suspension

Hi All,

I was having new non RFT installed today. The tires were in bad shape and one had a bulge.

The indie I took it to said the wear indicates that there's a problem with the shocks.

I still have 2 months left on the extended warranty.

should this be covered? Been looking on the Internet but can't find anything. I have a $50 deductible and would rather pay that.

I have 68k miles on a 2103 528xi The car is at the shop, so I don't have any of the documentation at hand

On the extended warrantee I had on my old E93 335i it covered various suspension components (metal) and bushings. But I don't know if it would have covered shocks.... those seem like a wear item to me - like Rotors.

Call them and ask.

Unless you have some other warranty, I believe bushings and shocks are normally not covered on a CPO warranty.
