Question Can you CPO a non-dealership car?

I asked the dealer, he pretty much said it'd be a shitload, ie 3k+

IF I knew someone who worked at BMW, could they swing something better? He said the biggest portion is paying for repairs that BMW would require for it to be CPO, which I found to be very sales pitchy...this is why you buy from dealer, blabla, CPO is better, blabla.

Worst case, I will pick up an aftermarket warranty.

The 32,000 mile CPO E91 I purchased two years ago from a BMW dealer had flawless body and paint work, perfect leather, new RFT tires, new floor mats and was generally in new car condition.

That, and the CPO warranty, seemed worth about $3k to me.

You were under factory though, right? This one is JUST out of factory.

no, you cannot CPO a car, can only be done by dealer.
however, you can choose from one of the BMW extended warranty, if you still have new car warranty remains, you can buy the gold or platinum, if out of new car warranty

if you meet these conditions:

If your vehicle is no longer covered under the BMW
New Vehicle Limited Warranty (and has less than 80,000
miles and less than seven years from the in service date) at
the time of vehicle enrollment, then your extended coverage
option is Powertrain Plus. You have the option of choosing
between three different terms of extended protection***:
1-year/12,000 miles
2-years/24,000 miles
3-years/36,000 miles

You can buy the silver warranty (they call it powertrain plus now), CPO = silver warranty + the initial inspections and replacing parts necessary to get up to spec, ie like new.

I could go direct to BMW for that warranty, even though it is out of factory/any warranty?

Any idea of cost levels?

Is the warranty any good? I could go with my CU and get one with a $50 deduct?

You can go to any BMW dealership service department for any in warranty/out of warranty repairs.
The cost is dependent on the labor rate for your area service departments, and it is expected to be higher than indy repair shops. To get the most out of your BMW experience I suggest becoming a BMWCCA member (if you are in the States). There are additional discounts/benefits associated with that.
I would suggest building a good relationship with an indy shop that is specialized in BMW cars (generally indy shops that specialize in German cars is a good bet).

take a look at the brochure, and you can decide for yourself, see what is covered and what is not, but i think its worth it for mechanical and electrical issues anyway, and don't expect that it will cover steering wheel peeling or trim cover fall off though, it is not new car warranty afterall.

Sounds like I should just get an aftermarket warranty and use an indy shop, I think i'll go that route.
