Today I got my 2008 528i CPO and had the same excat situation. He told me to call BMW since i got it from Benz dealer and they were close until monday, i will call first thing in morning.
Please make sure to call them and change the VIN # profile to your name as new owner, this was his only advice. it costs like $50 since I got it from outsider dealer.

I just did the following: called Custom Relationship 800-578-5000, option 2 , then spoke to Custom relationship agent, all I had to do was to provide the VIN number and he found confirmed it is a CPO and added my contacts information.
A very simple process, you should do it for peace of mind.

#11372 of 11920 Paying off early, restriction?
May 09, 2011 (9:25 pm)
I took the free 6yr/100K maintenance upgrade for the CPO special with BMW financing (5.5%, 60 months). The financing person stated that I needed to wait 4 months to refinance the loan due to the special. Can anyone confirm this?
FYI: I purchased 2008 328i CPO w/18.6K miles with auto, sport, premium, heated front seats, park distance control, xenon headlights, moonroof. Paid $28.5K + doc fee ($599!!!) + tax/tag/title.
#11374 of 11920 2009 328xi - good deal?
May 12, 2011 (10:57 pm)
Looking at a 2009 328xi automatic black/black sedan with 36k miles for ~$25k (not including tax). Clean carfax, 1 owner, had maintenance at 20k miles and 35k miles. Hesitant cuz of the mileage - thoughts? Anything I should look for specifically when I check it out? TIA.
p.s. - Carfax shows floor mats were installed twice at the beginning of the life of the car for some reason. Non-CPO cuz it's at a VW dealer (was previously leased from BMW, then a trade-in to VW). Brakes and tires are original.

Forgot to mention, the car has a cold weather package and some components of the premium, and xenon.
#11376 of 11920 Question about the Extended Maintenance program
May 21, 2011 (11:14 am)
Just got 2008 528i CPO with 31K on it, the car got extend warranty until 2013 and now being offered Extended maintenance program until 2013 ( 2 years ) for $1950 ( discounted from $2300), the program will cover everything except the Entrainment system and NAV. The Dealer Service Person recommended as none of the brakes were replaced and he told me a it would cost$1800 beside all Oils, belts and normal services , etc.. , I am planning to drive a 25K a year on this car, any advice if his numbers are correct?

Sounds high. I'm guessing it doesn't cover oil changes or regulalry scheduled services.
Ok let's say that you need one set of brake pads for four tires. Find out ho much that would be with parts and labor by calling the Service dept. I would also check what the regularly scheduled service intervals say for replacement if certain parts. Otherwise you are laying 2K fir the security of knowing most things would be covered if hey break.
