I recently bought a used BMW 2001 M3 - a dream car for me ( a former racer but now a rather poor(er) widow). Less then a month after the purchase the battery and the throttle actuator died. This cost me time and $1300 and the dealership of course said "we have no liability" - "sold as is". Please note that the ONLY place I could get a battery!! was at a BMW dealership!! What do u think???
Most high performance cars can be serviced and parts purchased only at the dealership. If they sold the vehicle to you in "As Is" condition then you have what you have.
I would recommend getting in touch with and joining a local BMW club. These people are usually lots of fun and have great insight on where to get parts, service, etc.

Joy, unfortunately this is where the rubber hits the road, although used cars are more affordable they also have somebody else
