How forgiving is BMW when it comes to expensive shit that goes wrong days after the warranty expires?

Do I have case to make or am I shit out of luck?
Call BMW NA and ask for a "good will" repair because your warranty just expired. Use the exact words "good will". Tell us if it worked.
If no codes are being thrown use Chevron Techron fuel injector cleaner (concentrate). It solves rpm fluctuating upon cold start-up. Also, for most BMW problems start off by scanning your car with the Peake Research Tool. It contains the actual BMW codes. If you want to register a newly installed battery for free (just buy a $10 cable) and google/download BMWLogger
