BMW Extended Service Agreement

I was reviewing the extended warranty contracts (platinum and gold) and it is of particular interest that BMW excludes "carbon build up". If this is not covered it seems to me that it may not be...

I have the start/stop function on my current 2014 328d and quite frankly never use it. I believe it puts more wear and tear on the starter than it worth. Fortunately we are are able to turn it off.

FWIW, we took that drive from Saltzburg to Florence a long time ago the first days of August and the traffic was real bad. Granted it was 2004 but it continues to scar my memory to this day.

Today in San Diego at my regular station diesel was at $4.03/gal while regular unleaded was at $4.25. Good for us diesel drivers, at least temporarily. Amazing what two months can do.
