Information required about: Extended Warranty

I've searched around but there is no topic about this in 6 series sub forum. I just wanna ask how much did you pay for ur extended warranty. I think extended warranty is almost not an option for the 6. Extended maintenance is not that useful? I've heard that buying extended warranty from other states is much cheaper than buying from Cali. I live in south LA. My dealer quote me around $9k for the extended warranty with LoJack when I bought the car, they say buying from them is cheapest I can get. Is that true? Anyone can give me some opinion. Thanks.

How's ur car when going? Is it true about the Myth that BMW often have electrical problems? iDrive and parts? I recently got Navi problems, replaced and 2 days later have to bring to dealer again. It works now thanks god.

Mein Auto: 2009 BMW 650I
I just got my 2009 BMW 650I coupe in April, my car has just about 3,000 miles on it. I'm also in the market for a warranty. The price I got was was about $3,500 from a BMW dealer selling a non BMW warranty. The quote was for 6 years up to 100,000 miles bumper to bumper. One thing you have to do is read all the fine print, there are a lot of horror stories out there. $9,000 is nuts for a warranty. I might try the Mercury Auto Pom warranty, if you do a search on the forum there are 2 people who have it and are happy. Also if you want a BMW warranty and or BMW maintenance plan check this website for a quote http://bmwpartssource.com/partlocato...?siteid=216042there's a link on the left middle of there website, if u do post what there quote is. They are
a BMW dealer Faulkner BMW of Lancaster PA.

Here are some links that I had bookmark:

Thanks man, I'm checking everything you send me. My car still under original warranty but recently I just paid $800+ for the differential and transmission fluid at South Bay BMW. They say it's not covered by original warranty and maintenance.

I have an 07' that I picked up on Nov. It had 36k miles on it.
I purchased a warranty from Auto-pom for $2500. That was their best coverage that covers the car for 5 years or 100K miles with $0 deductible. There are lots of posts about this. Read carefully as some have been burnt on the coverage exclusions. There are many kinds of coverage so do your homework. Good luck.

How come you had the change the diff and trans fluid? I thought the BMW trans fluid was lifetime? The $800 seems a lot just to replace the trans and diff fluids. What year and how many miles does your 650 have?

Roseng, have you had any claims with the Auto Pom warranty? If you did any trouble with them? I'm thinking about going with them as my warranty is up in Feb.
Thanks

$3400 for BMW corporate platinum extended warranty from Shelly in Beuna Park.

It's paid for itself already.

I've read your case. That's epic. Lots of headache. I think I'm gonna get from a BMW dealer for a piece of mind. I don't want to get tired with all the claim and wrong part sent.

Mein Auto: 2008 650i Coupe 6MT
Hello, new owner of an 08 coupe 6 speed with 36k miles. During the purchase process, Beverly Hills BMW offered full extended warranty for 3 years or next 36000 miles for $4500. Maintenance for $2700 or something like that. Thought it was a bit much so I declined both.

Car is solid, but I think I'm going to go with an aftermarket extended warranty for peace of mind.

Coop919, where did you read the horror stories about autopom? I can't seem to find them and I'm reading decent reviews about them. Or maybe I just suck at searching.

I think I'm going to pull the trigger on Mercury, the reviews seem good enough. Platinum full coverage including electronics package 100000 miles / 60 months quoted $2355 with $100 deductible.

Its really a headache trying to feel comfortable with one of these extended warranty companies because you never know if you're going to get screwed or not. It's like making a transaction in a dark alley where you might get jacked or come away feeling like you have gotten a great deal . Peace of mind comes at a price in the car business. That is one of the reasons why I looked for CPO cars to give some coverage on major items. Sure things will break and that is why I've always believed in keeping a slush fund to take care of certain mishaps if no warranty and you plan on keeping the car. The dealer offer might be a bit more but they might take care of you better than another comapny that would have to be haggling with the dealer anyway if your car is at their shop to fix.Usually if you buy from your dealer and you know the SA pretty well, they will take care of you. Its all in the realtionships my friend.

AutoPom pull a good deal however every time you have a problem you gotta file a claim and wait for the part to come to the dealer. I'm going to get one from BMW dealer, more expensive but it's a piece of mind I think.

Yes it was a pain , but I got my baby back in better shape. If you are looking at 3rd party extenended warranty then you will have a simular story if put into my position. However I have no experience in dealing with CPO warranties. I heard it is much more smoother.

I paid $5000 for my 5 year or up to 75000 miles (whatever comes first) with a company callled Zurich. It has a $100 deductible. I got it from the BMW dealer and they swear by it as the best warranty which never fails to pay. I've heard that other cheaper warranties are difficult to get your claim reimbursed.

I can add feedback for the CPO, it is very smooth. Really there are no disputes, whatever they find is the problem they tell you immediately whether it is a non-covered or covered item. If it is covered (which all $5000 of my repairs were under CPO) they proceed immediately into it with genuine, new, BMW parts. I guess they could have used reman'd parts, but typically they pull them out and start repairing ASAP and I never thought to inquire as I could not envision parts that were not new!

Not to mention CPO gives me BMW roadside and full dealer labor rates. None of the "we pay standard rates" and if you take it to the dealer who is higher you end up paying the difference.

The only problem with Dealer purchased non-CPO warranties is that they are still administered by a third-party. Typically it is the Finance Managers who well the after-market extended warranty, at least the ones that pitch it to me were. So whatever sales-guy talked them into using their company is the one they are selling. But I would think that most BMW dealers would stick with a quality provider like the one they sold you, Zurich.

Even though my car was CPO I did buy an aftermarket road hazard program for my tires and rims. Worked out well, but even though I went back to my same dealer to initiate several claims there was one that dragged on in a dog-fight between me and the third-party company. The dealer was not much help since it wasn't BMW.

Third party companies are in it to make money. So they are going to stick REAL close to the exclusion list that is in your contract. Read it closely!

Today I bought an extended warranty from Auto-POM. It is a 48 month 100,000 mile platinum, with electronics package, and $50 deductible. Cost $2,317. I thought the exclusions were fairly limited. I hope I am right. They no longer offer a 60 month, 100,000 mile option according to Lisa.
