CPO Came in Handy - Oil Leaks
 
So, was in for annual oil service last Thursday and my SA also wrote down some "fake complaints" by me on items he knows are common on e70s ('08 but only 50K miles on it). They checked radiator, power steering and oil leaks. Radiator and power steering came back fine but the tech found numerous oil leaks. I got the invoice back-- doesn't list prices but this is what was replaced below. SA said it would have been $4K if I didn't have the CPO (of course that's dealer pricing but still). My CPO is still good until 8/29 this year so will have them check again before then. Interestingly, I asked about getting the power lumbar support being covered under CPO and it is (thought it wouldn't).

Lists of found and fixed repairs by a dealer, under CPO or any warranty, make me go, "Hmmmm".

My fave on your list is 'spark plugs', probably billed at ~$20 each, an early mileage replacement, imo, and one wouldn't know if they really did them or not...

Glad they 'found' stuff and fixed it for 'free', but one has to wonder how much of these finds by dealers is legit vs padding for the dealer.

Not suggesting dlrs should be required to work on a biz model of low profit, but new car sales ain't the gross margin/bill payer in the dealer stores I know of, owned by friends.

Interesting...

Yeah who knows for sure but I did start to smell a little burning oil when I got back from driving to my sister's in Houston for Christmas. Spark plugs def are cheap I just listed that as well.
