CPO Inspection Failure

I bought a 2007 CPO 328 sedan 2 months ago. I was just rear ended and had some body repairs done to fix a dent in my rear bumper. When they were replacing the bumper, the shop saw that my one of my side panels was horribly replaced with a reconditioned part. There is a small area, not easily seen, that has already begun to rust. The shop told me this needs to be replaced ASAP. Is this something I can expect the sales team to pay for, as it was sold CPO? The whole reason I bought a CPO car was to avoid issues like this with used cars. Any input is appreciated.

Have the shop state that in writing. Take it to the dealer that sold you the car and show them the letter. If they don't want to do anything about it then get their name and call and write a letter to BMW NA.

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

Not likely. CPO does not involve pulling off body panels to inspect if they were repaired/replaced. What probably happened is that the original owner damaged the car and paid out of pocket to fix it (using cheap non-OEM part). The repair didn't appear on Carfax and BMW is non-the-wiser.

BUT...That said, being that you only bought the car 2 mo's ago, time is on your side. Bring is ASAP!!!!
