There are lots of aftermarket warranty companies...you need to read the fine print, some are okay, some aren't.

If yours is beyond the factory warranty, not sure you can extend the factory one, and it doesn't go that long or for as many miles. Functionally, though, you have your choice of dealer and it's pretty much the same features as what you have now.

Whether it's a good deal or not is pot luck just like any insurance company policy.

The general consensus seems to be that ext warranty prices are negotiable.

Hope this helps a bit:

Yow. I paid half of that for the platinum extended warranty (no maintenance) which goes out 7 years/100k miles.

Expect almost 2x for an F07. The F07 is 10% more than the F10.

have been in contact with Daniel , very nice guy and he did offer better deal :

That is a fairly expensive model for warranty, but I will give you the best prices that I can.
The original warranty and maintenance on the car are for 4 years or 50K. You still have several options for extending these while you are under original coverage.
For the warranty portion BMW will allow you to extend up to 5 years or 70K, 5 years or 100K, 6 years or 70K, 6 years or 100K, 7 years or 70K, or 7 years or 100K (please be aware that the 5, 6, and 7 years is really an extra 1, 2, or 3 on top of original coverage). You can also choose between the Powertrain Plus, Gold and Platinum coverage. The Powertrain Plus is pretty limited so I would recommend either the Gold or Platinum (the main difference is that the Platinum will cover the navigation, stereo, CD player and entertainment and the Gold will not). Here are the prices for those plans.

Gold

5 year / 70K $3,029

5 year / 100K $3,420

6 year / 70K $3,699

6 year / 100K $4,190

7 year / 70K $4,290

7 year / 100K $5,190

Platinum

5 year / 70K $3,430

5 year / 100K $3,880

6 year / 70K $4,201

6 year / 100K $4,770

7 year / 70K $4,880

7 year / 100K $5,920

You can also extend the maintenance to cover scheduled services on the car. This can be extended up to 6 years or 100K for $2,095.

Will be interesting to see what our 535i GT will run for the plat. It has 22k on it now, so I still have approx 20 months.

Just got a quote

I'm starting to look at extended warranties for my GT. I stumbled across an option I would not have considered the other day when we picked up a new Highlander for my wife. The Toyota dealership also has a Cadillac sister and the Finance guy offered me a GM Ext Warranty for my GT. One catch is I have to bring my car to a GM dealer for all repairs and if the repair is too challenging, they handle getting the GT to a BMW dealer.

Prices for the "Major Guard" plan (think Platinum) are intriguing.

If I start the coverage before my GT hits 24000 miles (very soon), I can get coverage of 5 yrs/75000 miles from contract date. This would take me to approx 100k over the next 5 years. So basically my GT is already covered under BMW for next 2 yrs (unless I hit 50K a few months early) so effectively this plan gives me 3 more yrs of almost bump2bump coverage past the original BMW coverage.

Cost is $3945 w/ 100 deductible, $3350 w/ 200 deductible plus tax

If I wait a year to buy this plan, the cost goes up about $1000 higher and the plan would be 4 yrs/50K max only getting me to 90K miles. Basically, he ran a quote pretending my car was an 11 with 42K miles on it.

Just for fun, I'll point out that I purchased a 8yr 125K mile 0-ded Toyota Platinum Plan for the new 2014 Highlander Limited Platinum for $1500! And don't forget that Toyota only comes with 3/36 so that's a lot of ext warranty for only $1500!

Just wondering what you all think of this as an option? And since this thread was a little stale, perhaps some of you have purchased an extended warranty recently and will share your details?

I just finished up major guard coverage under Gm's GMPP extended warranty on my 2008 suburban. The warranty cost about $3k +/- and it paid out north of $8k over its life. Included a complete rebuild at 90k miles when my truck swallowed the rings on two cylinders and they had to rebuild the lower half (somehow it didn't take out the valvetrain).

I had no idea that GM was covering non-GM products. I recall when Chrysler owned MB that you could extended Chrysler warranties on an MB - even for a few years after MB was sold off....

these guys used to be the cheapest dealers selling GMPP over the internet.

Dkk,
Great info on the factory extended warranty prices and just in time as I'm researching my options now. Thx!

rogueshot,
It's not relevant to the warranty topic, but just for future trivia games -Chrysler didn't own Daimler (I'm assuming your MB stands for Mercedes Benz - Daimler is the parent company). When Daimler bought Chrysler it was called, "a merger of equals", but that was just public relations speak. Daimler owned 92% of Chrysler. That relationship was doomed from the outset and eventually Daimler sold it's interest in Chrysler to an investment company. Chrysler is now owned by Fiat (which was an Italian company, but 2 months ago Fiat completed it's full purchase of Chrysler and announced the formation of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) based in Netherlands.

Are you sure that you have to take the BMW to a GM dealer for the GMPP and the new GMEP??

When Chrysler offered the extended warranties on MB, you went straight to the MB dealer (both when MB owned Chrysler and after it sold it off). My mother had this extended warranty on her MB and used it several times without incident or hassle....

Please keep us posted on what you find. I'm definitely considering the GM option. It appears to be significantly lower than anything else.

Other than what dKk showed for the BMW factory extended service, I got a quote for Allstate extended Service
from one of the local BMW dealers. These numbers are for Allstate's top plan - similar to BMW platinum, but the numbers start at end of factory warranty:

- 4yr /48k mi. $3950 - no deductible if I go to that dealer for service, $100 elsewhere

- 5yr /60k mi $4735 - 50 deductible everywhere

What I don't like with BMW or Allstate is that the contract is inclusionary, instead of exclusionary.

Going to another BMW dealer this week to see what they have. I've heard they offer GM package. I'll post up what I find out.

not to state the obvious, but you should go directly to Allstate to get a quote on their warranty coverage - I expect that the dealer will mark it up....

And I can almost guarantee that any BMW dealer offering the GM GMPP/GMEP extended warranties will be selling them at a cost that is higher than the GM dealers selling them online (the Cadillac dealer I posted above is well known to be selling the GMPP/GMEP at the lowest price of any GM dealer - I have bought 2 GMPP warranty's from them).

rogueshot,
Good point about Allstate. However, I will give that Cadillac dealer a call tomorrow. Had to travel out of town on business, so I've fallen behind on this task. I'll post up what I find out, just to give others a general picture of the cost comparison. I do like that the GMPP Major Guard plan is exclusionary.

chemlite

don't forget about these guys https://www.route66warranty.com/asp/index.asp

almost everything you find on them is good to great. plenty of BMW, MB another imported owners have warrantied through these guys and have good things to say. you have to join a participating credit union to get pricing/coverage. I joined penfed credit union. a little bit of paperwork but it only costs like $10 - you make a charitable contribution to some veteran's organization and that qualifies you to join the credit union. once you join the credit union you can get rt 66 pricing and purchase through the credit union (rt 66 does not sell direct).

Got a definitive answer back from the James Black Cadillac dealer. Neither GMPP or GMEPP are available for my 2010 550i GT. The car must be within 3 years of it's in-service date and less than 36,000 miles.

rogueshot,
If I'm ever up your way, I owe you a beer. Your tip about the Route 66 extended warranty is the tip of the year.

Interested readers,
If other forum members follow rogueshot's link, they can get more information, but here's some of the highlights:
- they have an A+ rating by BBB
- the GT is in their premium car class and they offer an exclusionary service contract for the model - see the "Easy Street" package for $1995. It's a 5 year/100,000 mile contract. 5 years from date of contract purchase or 100,000 total miles on the car. - Basically, it covers everything except what they specifically call out as exceptions like normal maintenance wear and tear components - brake pads and rotors, shocks. However, they do specifically exclude the stereo, entertainment, and nav systems. There is a PDF available via the link with more details. The coverage looks similar to BMW gold package, but less than half the price.
- As rogueshot said, you have to purchase these through a financial institution like a credit union. Generally CU's are offering these as membership incentives so they aren't marking them up the auto dealer typical 100% markup. You can contact them via the website to find a CU nearby that offer the warranty. Cinfed CU is one near me in Cincinnati and living there is all I need to do to qualify for membership. The Penfed CU that rogueshot mentioned would be a good option if you don't have one near you. If you dig around in the Penfed website you'll find the link to the charitable orgs you can join to be eligible for CU membership.
- There is no deductible
- Rental car coverage of $50 per day is provided when covered repairs are required.
- They pay the dealer via credit card so there isn't a bunch of paperwork for the dealer to deal with. You can take your car to any licensed repair shop.

I'll be purchasing one of these contracts when I get back in town next week unless I get surprised by something that changes my mind. I'll post an update.

Mein Auto: 550
Chem:

glad you agree. I came to the same conclusion before I even bought my 2010 550. Given how delayed my in service date was, I still have some time before I need to pull the trigger but I already made my $20 charitable donation that qualified me to join penfed and I went ahead and got the paperwork out of the way. $25 deposited in penfed money market account.....

I am still within 3/36 of my inservice date, maybe ill give black's cadillac a call and get a GMPP price... I did have a great experience with it for my chevy suburban.....

Interested readers,
If other forum members follow rogueshot's link, they can get more information, but here's some of the highlights:
- they have an A+ rating by BBB
- the GT is in their premium car class and they offer an exclusionary service contract for the model - see the "Easy Street" package for $1995. It's a 5 year/100,000 mile contract. 5 years from date of contract purchase or 100,000 total miles on the car. - Basically, it covers everything except what they specifically call out as exceptions like normal maintenance wear and tear components - brake pads and rotors, shocks. However, they do specifically exclude the stereo, entertainment, and nav systems. There is a PDF available via the link with more details. The coverage looks similar to BMW gold package, but less than half the price.
- As rogueshot said, you have to purchase these through a financial institution like a credit union. Generally CU's are offering these as membership incentives so they aren't marking them up the auto dealer typical 100% markup. You can contact them via the website to find a CU nearby that offer the warranty. Cinfed CU is one near me in Cincinnati and living there is all I need to do to qualify for membership. The Penfed CU that rogueshot mentioned would be a good option if you don't have one near you. If you dig around in the Penfed website you'll find the link to the charitable orgs you can join to be eligible for CU membership.
- There is no deductible
- Rental car coverage of $50 per day is provided when covered repairs are required.
- They pay the dealer via credit card so there isn't a bunch of paperwork for the dealer to deal with. You can take your car to any licensed repair shop.

I'll be purchasing one of these contracts when I get back in town next week unless I get surprised by something that changes my mind. I'll post an update.
