Nice car; I'm sure the new owner will enjoy it, as you will enjoy your new M3.
I see rust spots were repaired under warranty.
How did you swing that?
I thought the warranty only covers perforation; i.e. there has to be holes completely through the body work for anything to be covered.

Nope, it covers any rust on the body so long as it isn't the result of a puncture, either from an accident or a rock chip.

Initially I had rust inside the door well where the latch sits, and connects to the door locks.

Took it into the dealer, no questions asked, they took photos, got it approved and shuttled me home a few days later when the car was brought back for repairs. Total cost: $0.

Second time around I had 4 spots and they said no, because I didn't have maintenance history. The fine print on the warranty says you need a dealer visit every 2 years. But I had asked service advisers when I first bought the car, and they were all clueless about the inspections. Actually if you ask for a rust inspection they don't know how to put it into the computer.

So they denied me, and I went through the winter with the car and got 6 spots in total. Crazy amounts of salt we use here!!

Anyway I went back and this time with paperwork, they said nope still denied.
I then proceeded to complain to BMW Canada and started hell there. It's sad that I had to.

After this I took the car to Budd's in Oakville, and it was fixed immediately.

As per their internal quotes, the damage was $8,000. I then had the first dealer start calling me back, begging. But it was too late.

I won't mention who the original dealer was, so don't ask.

I didn't pay a penny, and the warranty is still good until next year. For those two don't know, it's 8 years since the 2007 cars. Funny because my 2004 didn't have a spot of rust until the 9-10 year mark.
