#361 of 762 Re: '04 330i CPO - good deal or not? [kaikousha]

The CPO warranty continues to six years from the in service date- that is, when the car was first sold/leased. And the mileage warranty ends at 100K miles on the vehicle odometer. The car will easily go 200K miles, but you cannot scrimp on maintenance. I'd want to see a full service history and I'd also have the car checked out by a good BMW techg. FWIW, I'm currently considering buying a 2003 540i 6 speed manual- with no warranty whatsoever. It all depends on your comfort zone...

So to confirm, the warranty will expire either in 2010 or after it's been driven 16k more miles? Hrm.

I'm thinking that the "deal" sounds more like a scam. Think about it this way, have you caused even half that much wear and tear on your cars over the last ten years? Geez, I don't think my wife and I combined have accumulated even that much in wear and tear over the last twenty, and during that time we had two children (now teenagers), and neither of them were terribly gentle on our cars.

Thanks for the reply Shipo. Yeah, I never usually take extended warranties, etc on anything. We have three kids 8, 10, and 12, and big mastiff that will be jumping in and out of it. I can't even count the scratches on my minivan anymore. I think 1500 hundred is a bit too much too...easy enough to cancel they gave us 60 days with no penalties...only reason it was considered. Thanks again.

I agree with Shipo 100%.
It's a racket.

#370 of 762 Keep my BMW 2006 330xi or lease a BMW 2008 328i?
Feb 06, 2009 (5:45 pm)
Here is my situation:
I bought a certified used BMW 330xi and I am currently paying $470 per month. The car has about 39,000 miles on it. I have 59months left of payments.
I got an offer to lease a 2008 328i 3 series sedan for $527 a month with $3,000 down. 10,00 miles per year for 36 months. The dealership would get me out of the 330xi
Should I keep my used car or get into the newer car and have the luxury of walking away after 3 years.
Here are the features that I would be giving up if I go with the 2008 328i:
all wheel drive
illuminated door sills
Logic 7 sound system
What are everyine's thoughts?
