: : : While BMW's are reliable, they are not Japan reliable (and I have both).

: : : Anything that breaks can cost major bucks.

: : : Since you have the factory warranty left for quite a while, I would not worry about the warranty. You can always pick up an extended warranty from any of the online suppliers before the factory warranty ends. (I have one and have not used it since going from 56,000 to 67,000)

: : : One good thing about the certified BMW's is that they are usually the pick of the litter. The added cost may be worth having less of a chance of getting a lemon or a beater. The dealers can also give you the name of ther previous owner for a reference.

: : : : : very interestd in purchasing a cert. used bmw. just curious if anyone else bought one, are there any advantages to getting this as opposed to a plain old bmw? i know they give you a extended warranty and all, but is it worth it?
: : : : : by the way, it is a 97 M3 5 speed with 21000 miles for 35900, no haggling on price yet
