I made an appt to take my new to me 2013 535xi to the dealer for two issues I have noticed since purchasing the car in Feb. The car has the M Sport package with Multi-Contour seats. The steering wheel has a small piece of leather that is coming apart, that if not taken car of will turn into a big piece of leather. Will this be covered under the warranty or is this considered wear and tear?
I have also noticed a clicking/clunking sound coming from the drivers seat. I originally thought it was coming from something I had in the drivers door pocket. I finally removed all the item, and the sound is still there. Will I have to drive the car with the service adviser in the car until they hear the sound?
Any insight on what I should be prepared for is appreciated. Stefnee
The steering tear should have been taken care of during the CPO inspection, but yes, it is covered. BMW does also harp on about how they cover wear and tear items, like brakes/wipers/bulbs. (No tires... obvious reasons)
I'm not sure how an obvious leather defect would be brushed off.
