I recently purchased a 2003 325i which is still covered under warranty. I wanted to know if things like oil changes, tune-ups, brakes, etc. are included in the factory warranty. Dealership was of little help and so was the manual. Also, is it automatically transferrable to me on the purchase.

most everything I think oil changes are to. but they will want to change when your inspection miles reach zero i think maybe someone else knows better. I had a number of stuff done to mine before my warranty expired i had them replace my steering wheel defective it would twist around speakers were replaced. I had them fix some paint defects on it to. If you have a problem take it to them don't wait otherwise after the warranty expires get ready to be raped by them Maybe someone else knows better

The Full Maintenance is the one that covers oil service (only when the service indicator comes on every ~15,000 miles), scheduled inspections, oxygen sensor, etc. Normal wear and tear is covered too for things like windshield wipers, break pads, air filter, etc.

The Warranty only covers defects that they consider are due to bad manufacturing or early death (e.g., it was supposed to last 4 years but it broke after 1 or 2 years of use).

Usually, if something is bothering you about the car, even if it is minor, bring it to the dealer. Most likely, it will be covered by the warranty.

Note that tires, alignments, balance, and tune-ups are not covered by either warranty or full maintenace unless something covered causes the other to break, i.e., a engine piece recall forces a tune-up.

I hope this helps...

Is it worth it to get the full maintenance warranty?
