Also, it is possible to find 2014 i3s with the BMW CPO warranty, but it appears that only tacks on 1 year to the warranty, and there seems to be a lot of exclusions. Would it even cover issues with the REX? Or "drivetrain issues"?
I think I read every forum and article about "drive train" problem with BMW i3 - this problem occurs in both versions REX and BEV.
I bought mine 2014 i3 with BMW CPO warranty and they gave me 2 year extra.
So far I use this warranty to:
- fix the problem with opening the tank cover
- replace the AC expansion valve ~$480
- replace damper cover
- replace steering rods
- replace engine mounts
- fix the drive train problem ~$5k
All of this repair was made from CPO warranty.
So far I paid only for new brake pads with sensors ~$310
In the BMW intranet my warranty is described as "Repair Inclusive - 4 years / 200,000 km" so probably first owner bought this option and they was able to transfer this option to me as a new owner.
