And the finance manager told me any bmw dealership I go to will give me the same price because the pricing comes from BMW and not the dealership.

I bought mine at FFX but I shopped around first and got quotes from different dealers. Then I got the lowest price and pitted them against each other. FFX best them all.

I'm willing to bet they can budge on the price. Also, Platinum doesn't cover everything. I have the platinum too. It is the most comprehensive, but it is an exclusionary warranty (which is good) and lists what is not covered. Items that are not covered can be found in a sample contract. Ask for one or read one of my earlier posts where I provided a link to m5board. It's posted in there. Powertrain warranty is the equivalent to a CPO warranty and only covers powertrain related items and engine components.

Who exactly did you talk to?
