Hey all,

I know that the BMW extended warranty needs to be added to the car before it hits 4 years/50,000 miles.....Do you know if this rule also applies to the maintainence package?

Looking to purchase a 2001 CPO 325i (CPO till July 2007) with 56,000 miles on it....Do you know if I can add the BMW Maintainence package on it, or is it not possible now that the car has hit 50,000 + miles....

Also, anyone got a full brake job (front and rear) done at the stealership recently.......

Thanks guys.

I have a 2001 325i Sport sedan and the quote I got for front brakes was 574.94 and the rear was 553.64. This of course was from the stealership. After visiting the stealership due getting an alignment they suggested that I only needed a front brake job. Hope this helps!

F.Y.I - the brake job included rotor replacement, pad replacement, brake sensor replacement, and Plastilube. I'm not sure if the plastilube was for the brakes or ... :wink

BMW Stealerships are notorious for using the plastilube on customers.

Plastilube or Vaseline...It really is your choice.
Either way your gonna get bent over the BMW Service Counter 90% of the time!

According to Bimmerworld, Plastilube is used to reduce squeal from your brake pads.
