On May 26th I purchased a 2011 328i xDrive Sports Wagon, with roughly 48,000 miles, from a non-local dealer. As third owner I wasn't eligible for CPO status anyway, but since the car was originally a dealer demo, I got an extra few months (and 5,000 miles) on the warranty. I had my favorite indie shop check the car out very thoroughly, and my local dealer took care of almost everything they found, only charging me for one non-covered part. A couple of months later, I started noticing that my right front wheel was MUCH dustier than my left front wheel, as in SEVERAL TIMES dustier. I got new summer tires (I knew the originals were worn when I bought the car) but the shop checked the brakes and nothing upset them at the time. As the weeks wore on the problem got worse and worse; my right front wheel was SOLID BLACK with dust while my left front wheel was just irritatingly grey. I started asking around, and was basically told I was crazy. (Someone said "as a BMW owner you need to be good friends with your wheel brush.") The problem kept getting worse, until two weeks ago when I got my snow tires put on. (This is why the weather has warmed up!) The same people who put the summer tires on inspected my brakes again, and this time they found that my right front caliper is sticking and has ground the outer pad down to almost nothing; they estimated I might have 500 miles before I start hitting metal-to-metal. The inner pad, and both pads on the left side, look fine, though both disks seem to be grooved. I was torn between being disgusted and feeling vindicated. Alarmed, I went back to my local dealer, and was told that although I still had a couple of thousand MILES on my extended-demo-vehicle warranty, the TIME had run out... two days ago. (I had called earlier but that was the earliest I could physically get there.) They offered to charge me $149 to lift the car and see whether I was right, after which it would be "the service manager's discretion" whether to fix things for less than $850. I don't dispute that I was indeed two days beyond the time limit on the warranty, but the problem very definitely began months ago, and I'd complained to several people, only to be told I was probably imagining things. Obviously, having BMW pay for this is more fun than paying for this myself, but I don't think asking that they cover this as a warranty issue is unreasonable. Do I have any recourse?
