Probably I'll change my mind on prolonging the CPO in my 6. I can get a deal only paying the months I'll have the car on the road. Here in the Netherlands we have to pay monthly roadtax ($120/month for the 6-er :X) and if it's suspended the car cannot be on the puplic road but offcource then I'll pay nothing. Due to the dutch wheater I'll only drive the car 6 months a year and the other monts it's suspended from road tax and in hybernation in my garage.
Anyways, I can get a deal to have extended factory warranty for $130 a month. If I will only use the car for 6 months the insurance company will spread the fee for 1 full year over 2 years SO I can drive my car as I planned with extended factory warranty costing me less than $800 a year, covering almost everything. (except tires, regular maintenance, brakepads etc. ofcource).

I forgot to mention that I get a 10% discount on the fee because I didn't claim in the previous year.

So I need more than $1500 on repair costs to make the CPO worth the money.

I was wondering which repair costs you all ran into @ which milage?

What is your opinion in my case? The car is a 2006 650i vert. with approx 22000 miles on it. It's not a daily drive thus I'll drive not more than 4000 miles a year.
Man, that is cheap. Over here I was quoted $3300 for something similar.
