Please note that the BMW warranty has not only the miles at 50k, but the years come into play too. 4 years or 50k which ever comes first, the warranty runs out, unless there is an extended warranty. This looks like stevo8's problem, as his is a 2006 with no extended warranty, so he ran out of the 4 years given by BMW even though he is under in miles.

Sometimes allot gets lost in the typing....

So my car is 2008 with 17200 miles. I was thinking of waiting until spring to get this thing fixed, but since warranty is 4 years, I should be trying to get it into the dealer ASAP? Or, since I bought this car used with CPO, CPO should cover this, right?

Either way, I hope they fix this. I don't plan on dumping my Z4. I'll probably keep it and hand it off to my boy when he gets older.
