BMW dealer repair warranty?

Anyone know how long BMW dealers warranty their customer paid repairs? My e70 has an oil filter housing leak and according to the last owner's records it was replaced at the local dealer 13 months and 10k miles ago. Should they cover replacing it again?

They basically skirted the issue and said it was probably a crack in the oil cooler. Told them to stick it and took it to my Indy. Two replacement gaskets later, new expansion tank and several coolant flushes later and I'm good to go. There's a reason I stick with my Indy as I trust them and they are fair.

Dealer I got my e70 from (in '12) stood by parts and labor for 12 months. I got my active tank replaced two or three times under their repair warranty. Last one must have been a better design as it hasn't broken again (knock on wood). I have not seen an y change in that 12 months warranty.

Hmmmm, love those black headliners!

Usually, depending on the repair, they might stand behind it for 12 months and that is usually only for the person who had the repair done.

My sister purchased a used 3 series that had literally just had the valve cover gasket replaced a week before the previous owner sold it to her and it leaked everywhere, again, 3 days after she drove it home, Dealer told her to stick it - they didnít fix it for her - so she worked it out with the PO and he took it back over. I find BMW Dealers to be a bit prudish... I think it was the second poster who said it best - find a good Indy, maybe someone recommended in your area by the forum, and stick with them

You will likely have the best experience going that route.

FWIW. Used to be 2 years 24k miles. Back in the day. Most BMW invoices used to have printing in a watermark on the back of the pages, so any repair included the standard language on it. Not sure if they still do, been a while since I was at a dealer....
