Haasman, we also have a 95 wagon, which we bought through a local independent, it has a third party warranty which will not cover the items you describe; that's ok, I can fix all that kind of stuff myself.
What I find outrageous is that they were not covered at ALL under Starmark
The following items were covered 100%, no questions asked, thru the Certified program via BMW for our 98 328i currently with 55k miles:
1. Driver's side door lock actuator
2. Slightly drooping/warped (at rear window line) headliner.
3. Worn ball joints; currently a known trouble spot for all E36 models
The comparison is damning, and a sad commentary on MBUSA warranty policy, much like the wiring harness issue.
