What should be included with car?

Hi everyone,
I'm picking up a CPO 435I Gran Coupe today. I was hoping someone could chime in on what items I should check for. I know some cars may include accessories that are missing, like cargo net or such.
Anything I should have in mind when inspecting the car?

I already stressed that the car should be free of swirl marks.

Thanks in advance

My car was missing the cup holder cover but they gave me a "free" Backpack, coffee tumblr, charger, umbrella, and sunshade so I was alright with that. All weather mats too but I think they always include those.

Make sure that the emergency road kit is in there (i feel like 100% of the time it is) but just to be safe. Along with the jack.

Make sure it's insured before you drive it off the lot.

Test every function you can before you sign. My 15 x5 had a bad rear wiper motor on the dealer lot (not cpo).
Get two keys.

I asked about a cargo mat and they said they couldn't throw it in. Kind of cheap of them.

Good advice on insurance.
My insurance covers anything I buy for the first 30 days, but better not to delay adding it to the policy.

So cup holder covers, what tools are in the kit?

Make sure you have the lug nut key. That's the last thing you need missing in a time of need.

Standard key fob doubles as a valet key. Just remove the key blade from the fob.

Any decent insurance company will give you a comfortable grace period after buying a new car to include on your policy. It will have the same coverage the old car has.

I've never called my insurance company before I've brought my new car home.

Of course, you'll want to check your personal policy and state laws. Sometimes this only works if you are replacing a car so check that as well.

Your car will not be free of swirl marks. Even brand new cars will have some swirling. No dealership will ever paint correct a used car unless it was a in writing when you purchased the car. Just hope it's not too bad.

Check to make sure you get two keys, all manuals, the manual cover, cargo net, the tool kit (screwdriver, tow hook, wheel lock keys if equipped), cup holder lid, trunk tonneau cover, and all four floor mats.

+1

Even when they fix their own mistake and do a touch up, it looks amateur. I would have no hopes on not having swirl marks. Make sure to check if wiper blades are in good condition.

Make sure you have a "decent insurance company" and make sure it's insured before you drive it off the lot.

That's all fine because the insurance provider is happy to backdate your coverage. However if you have an incident before you have the car on your policy, expect a more difficult conversation.
There is no benefit to dragging your feet adding your car to the policy. Even when you add it they are likely to say that coverage will begin the following day.

I don't think the cargo net is standard. If it's not on your paperwork, it's not "included".

When I bought my CPO, before I said "Deal", I told them the accessories I needed to "make" the deal.

There is no Jack for RFT.

Not "couldn't"--"wouldn't".

You’re going to buy weathertech mats anyway. Just make sure to get two keys.

No, you don't have to expect a difficult conversation. Unless you're paying for some super discount insurance, you just call your local agent. Most states have some type of law that requires new cars to be covered by your most comprehensive insurance policy until you call in. In California, that grace period is 10 days I believe.

Your agent will just add your new car then you file a claim on that car. It's not like trying to get something warranty repaired on your car. The law is pretty cut and dry and there's really nothing to "negotiate" or argue about. You just show you purchased the car within the past 10 days (or whatever it is in your state) and you file a claim.

I'm not saying you should wait the full 10 days or anything. I always call the same day I get home.

Two keys included, the net is included because of the storage package option. Thanks everyone for the great advice. Still here filling paperwork.

One annoyance is a small fender ding. They said I can bring it back, but its 2.5 hour drive.

I'd love to hear that conversation if you Tracey Morgan driving home a $2.5M Bugatti home from Dealer that is involved in a wreck.

Hello, Flo...yes I need to insure my $2.5M Bugatti that was just involved in a wreck.
