BMW service warrantee

I have about a month left on my warrantee, what things should I get done before its, dare I say to late. I have the car in for service actually right now for the airbag light. Any recommendations before the warrantee expires? Also anybody know any good tricks to pull to get some free stuff outa the BMW dealership.

have them check the brakes for sure those get expencive when your waranty runs out,drive belts,coolant change,oil service,inspections,lower control arms,brake fluid change, if it a coupe and your door seals are falling apart get them replaced.

really the only way you will get anything free from BMW if it isn't a lagit complaint would be to complain about something and just make a huge deal about it. but i don't recomend that becasue when your car does go out of warranty they will remember the big fuss you put up. and they are gonna try and find anything and everything to sell you. of course you don't have to buy it but some people ar annoyed by that.

if they will do it, go for it... you could just burn them off in a short period of time, then they will replace them

i don't know how much. if they did do the brake under waranty it would cost but i know that a four wheel brake job usually gets close to the $1000 dollar mark. and that includes pads,rotrs, and sensors for all 4 wheels. well the sensors only go in the left front and the right rear.

Hey sardar!!!
I missed my warranty period and then saw my break pads light go off on the dashboard. I later took it to a family owned shop that only works on BMW's and Mercedes...I only changed the break pads and nothing else for about $400.

relplacing nly the pads insn't nesecerily a bad thing. however if the rotors are close to the minimum thickness then it probablly wouldn't be a good idea. becasue then later on down the road the rotors could warp and casue a vibration and not to mention it could also chew up your new pads quicker than normal if the rotors get warped.

Thanks for the info guys, i usally get some crazy ideas tell me would this one would work.... Is the suspension under warentee? If so could i bitch about how the handling doesnt feel good anymore etc and get them to change the shocks or somthing. Get some money outa these guys and i think they get payed by BMW for maintence work ne ways. so its win win

iono about that. is there really anything wrong with the handeling. how deosn't it feel "good". if there isn't really anything wrong then they will probablly say that there was no problem found or that they could not duplicate the problem. the shocks are probably just getting broken in. you can't really expect a not new car to handle like a new car ya know.
and just remember what i said if you bitch about a bunch of stuff and make it a pain in thier but they will remember that you did that when you come in next time and after your warranty runs out. i'm not saying that they will try and sell you things you really don't need or not do quality work but they will probablly try and sell you anything ther can next time your in. and some people hate that.
