Need Recommendation for BMW Service in CT/RI

I've only put 2000 miles on my CPO 340ix that I purchased back in November. Noticed around 6 oil splotches in the driveway last night when I parked in a different part of the driveway. I don't think it's diff fluid, smells like oil.

I've been doing a little research and am trying to decide where to bring the car. I bought it at BMW of Sudbury in Mass, but that's almost 2 hours away. New Country BMW in Hartford is 50ish minutes from me and BMW of Warwick is about 45 minutes from me.

Do any of you have any service experience with either? The reviews online are obviously mixed, but that's to be expected as most people who write reviews do it because they had an issue. Thank you in advance.


I'm going to put the car on ramps in a couple hours to try and see what's leaking, but an inspection from the hood last night didn't yield any results.

New Country has had my F31 there for a variety of issues (thankfully, all covered under extended warranty) and they’ve gotten the job done at no expense to me each time.

Thank you all for the suggestions! I did end up opting for Warwick. Front diff was leaking. One of the bolts/o rings that seals the diff was bad and there was a pretty bad leak. I'm lucky I made it the 45 miles without the diff blowing up, as it doesn't hold much fluid.

Also, the diff was most likely leaking when I purchased the car too, albeit not leaking much. Found out that CPO really doesn't apply to much of the car besides emissions/inspection components, which is upsetting and frankly a bit of a joke. Air filter was filthy when I bought the car too, so clearly BMW, or the particular dealership I went to, do not exactly perform a great inspection before selling the car. Very annoying and don't think I'll deal with the dealership I bought from again.

I've got about 15 months more of warranty with the added CPO warranty, so if I ever have an issue with Warwick I'll check out North Haven or Hartford. Thanks again!
