: I have the Cert Pre-Owned 6 year/100,000 mi warranty, shouldn't they have inspected the clutch during that certification?

I just checked the certif papers for my 97 coupe; the clutch is not mentioned anywhere. However, there is a specific measurement given for front and rear brake pads. The pads are not covered under certif warranty, as they are a "wear and tear" item. So, why are they measured? Because the dealer will replace the pads (and tires), if they are under spec for certification. I imagine this is to protect BMW from liability for accidents caused by faulty pads or tires.

I presume that if the inspection really covered the clutch in detail, then there would be a measurement given. Finally, a worn clutch is not going to increase the likelihood of an accident as much as would worn pads or tires.
