Cost of Extended Warranty

I just spoke to a BMW rep and asked about the extended service warranty on my 2011 328i,my car has 19,000miles on it and it is in great shape with all of her service being performed on time,the cost will be $2095.00 plus tax,that is bumper to bumper for 2 years or 100,000miles.I asked him if I could purchase the warranty now and for it to come into play after my existing warranty expires in November of 2014 so that I would avoid a price increase and he said that I could do that.Has anyone else done that or seen any problems with that?

"Extended service warranty" might give me pause just for being a bit unclear. Make sure you're getting the extended vehicle protection and not the extended maintenance.

Many different opinions on the value of the "extended vehicle protection" plan (my personal opinion is that I don't buy them), but there's a great deal of agreement that the "extended maintenance" plan is hard to justify.

Tread carefully. $2095 was the retail price they quoted me when trying to sell me the extended maintenance program when I bought my CPO. My guess is that is the program you were given a quote for...no need to buy that now imo.

No need to ever buy it - unless the OP knows his car will need both front and rear brakes including rotors within the 2 year window. And even then, he will come out ahead by banking the $2095 premium and using an independent BMW shop after the original 4 year/50k covered service expires.

Now if that premium is for a WARRANTY and not an extended service contract, the 100,000 mile figure makes sense. But as the two year time period seems pretty short for that kind of premium, I'd personally pass on that one as well.
