Leather Under CPO Warranty?

Just received my CPO 2009 E90. There is some wear on the driver's seat in the leather. I was not made aware of this prior to getting the vehicle (I completed the order online and never saw it in person). Is this covered under warranty?

I'm pretty sure it's just considered wear and tear. I just find it hard to spend that much money and never see what I'm buying, can't trust dealers for anything.

That sucks. I don't think it's covered under warranty as it's not a fault of BMW.

I had a large wear spot on my driver side bolster, I fixed it using Magic Mender Color Fix, they make specialty leather repair kits. The Color Fix is simply the color layer that can be bought separately from the full kit (cheaper, and i didn't need to repair holes or punctures). They have a full line of automotive interior colors, including almost all (from the looks of the list) BMW interior colors.

HERE is a thread on a detailing site where I documented the repair, with photos.

it's been almost a year since I did this, and if you didn't know where to look, you'd probably never find the spot I fixed.

Have you gone over 4 years or 50k miles? You sure you don't have any factory warranty left?

I will double check and if I do have the factory warranty, what would that mean?

Means you have more leverage than a CPO warranty. Most things covered.

If you have the factory warranty, they will replace it.

BMW replaced my driver's side seat back under original warranty. I have the lemon dakota leather, which is really light. Had a blue jean colored stain at belt height along the back and sides within first few thousand miles. Stain wouldn't come out. Worth asking the dealer to replace it before you try the repair on your own. Good luck.
