My warranty goes to 55,000 miles or 4yrs 3mos...

I have 47,000 miles on my car and brought it in for oil service today. I was informed for the first time that my warranty goes to 55,000 miles or 4yrs 3 mos?....I was like what?...I bought the first M3 to arrive in my state in April of 2008 and apparently BMW called it a "demo" car and gave it more warranty even though it was not demo'd!!......

odd for sure, my mom's 335 had warranty until 55k as well.

Of course problems didn't start to happen until 56k though...

That's weird man. Many German car dealers get incentives for 'punching' their new cars right away as either 'demos' or 'service loaners', meaning warranty starts counting right at that moment. What that means to the buyer is car has less than the 4-yr/50K-mile warranty. And yes, the great majority of 'punched' cars are not used for that purpose, but buyers get the lesser warranty. That's why I had a hard time finding my '08 with full warranty. Finally found one in Vegas, and that's the one I got. All others only had 3 years (or less) left.

Bottom line is your car probably had the warranty extended for another reason man. Find out if it had the engine or tranny replaced. And even then, buyers usually have to b*tch and moan before BMW agrees to that. Something fishy there, but glad you have a bit more piece of mind . Take care.

I bought a loaner X3, the warranty was extended. Congrats, your car WAS a demo or loaner and the warranty was extended.
