That's quite a high mileage for a Manhattan based car. My 2011 still has less that 40k miles on it. Most Manhattan cars are either garaged or get to spend some time in the body shop. At the very...

Like the original factory warranty, the platinum warranty covers the telematics unit in the car, I am not sure the Gold warranty does. An Assist plan won't be any good if there is an issue with the...

You are absolutely correct. The F10 drives more like a Buick/Lexus/Mercedes than a traditional BMW. After I test drove one, I ended up buying an E70 X5. I found it more fun to drive, probably because...

My extended warranty is up Sept of 2017 so it is unlikely that a retrofit would be worth the cost to me.

If you buy the BMW warranty, it will make claims much easier to manage. You just pay the $50 deductible. With a non-BMW warranty you may have to deal with the usual insurance claim processes.

You bring up another good point. The cost of BMWs has been getting ridiculous. They used to be reasonably priced IMHO.
