Buying a Diesel X5

Found a great 2015 X5 Diesel.

It appears to be perfect.

Should I spend the extra money and get it CPOd?

It has approximately 48,000 miles.
Was a lease car.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
My daily car is an BMW i3 REX.
Great Car

How much extra time does the CPO get you now? I would look into the extended warranty, because the diesel emissions stuff can be expensive to repair (I have heard, and read). I would want a couple of extra years / miles since you are 2k from the end of the MFR warranty... but thats just me.

I am guessing, that it gives me 50,000 more miles and three to five years.

You just gave me an idea.

I will own this SUV for many years. I will check to see if I can get a CPO for 50,000 miles and five years. These appear to be extended warranties. Probably a couple of options.

Thank you for the suggestions.

I dont know if CPO adds that much time, but what I would be focused on would be what you are talking about. Getting at least 2-3 years and maybe 50k miles... but I think CPO is going to add 1 year and unlimited miles (I seem to remember reading that CPO has changed recently but am not in the market right now so not following that closely).

I personally would get the BMW backed warranty, or not buy a warranty at all.

Thank you for the advice.

I am hoping that they have options for yers, etc.

I try not to own a BMW out of warranty.

Diesel's emissions systems will be fine in the southern state since we have still have 0%-5% max biodiesels (compared to northern states 7%-15%) warmer winters so DEF systems are less prone to freezing up or using the internal heaters, and if you do a lot of highway commuting you'll put less strain on the emission system, However OP may want to consider a gasser model if you're reliant on CPO warranty/3rd party warranty as most DIESEL emissions systems are NOT COVERED by warranty, "all" emission systems are only 2yr/24k miles and after that specific (some) emission systems are covered up to 8yr/80k mi from factory warranty.

Suggest you take a close look at what's covered under the extended warranty. IIRC, the diesel emissions components, by and large, are not covered.

Thanks for that information @motowpk and Mr.47. My own X5D is a MY 2016 and a 3 year lease. I was considering keeping it at the end of the lease (about a year left), but had not looked closely at the warranties. I made an assumption that appears to be wrong, so that will also give me food for thought if I decide to keep this car. We LOVE it, but i am "hesitant" to own this car out of a warranty.

I will check closely when the time comes. Thanks again

My 2015 X5 35d has CPO so I have very extensive coverage for 6 years and 160,000km. The CPO is far more inclusive than any available extended warranty when it comes to the engine management and emissions systems.
I prefer the diesel hands down over the gas models for economy and torque. I just finished driving 1100 km today on 1 tank of fuel.
