Pricing for 100K extended service plan

Does anyone know if the BMW 6 yr 100,000 mile extended service plan's price is negotiable? Does the price vary from dealer to dealer. My dealer quoted me $2,995.00 from which he said he would knock-off a couple hundred dollars. Is this plan worth the money? I will most likely average about 20,000 miles per year on my X5 35d.

Total rip off.

Price is negotiable- Ive seen it all over the place, sub 2k once as I recall.

You will get 3 oil changes, maybe a brake flush and a coolant flush, and maybe a brake job. Add up the prices a la carte....

Even at the stupid BMW retail prices, that isn't $2995 worth.

I can do my own work faster than the drive to the dealer, so it makes no sense for me... but 1500 is the break even in my mind. Again, I don't use the stupid BMW prices, just what a qualified indy should charge

A

PS I'd find the extended warranty to be a better value, given the propensity for small but expensive failures, and the risk of a big failure.

Is this warranty is for maintenance or parts/labor? If it is extended warrany on repairs/parts/labor, I think this is a good deal.

Also, check the dedctible amout for each visit. I bought this warranty for my X5D comes with a $ 50 deductible for all BMW dealers but waived if the service is provided by the selling dealer.

OP is talking about a "maintenance plan" that covers parts and labor for maintenance.

Are YOU referring to the "extended warranty" for "mechanical breakdown" (ie parts failure)? I agree this is more desirable, since those costs can get WILDLY out of control if you are unlucky

I can verifiy cost is negotiable.

Currently a good deal is offered by:

BMW South County (San Diego), Jeff Waters offers good pricing. Very nice guy, and straightforward.

The number for South County BMW is 619-442-8888. He gave me $1795 for a 08 335xi (which costs more than the 335i).

I got a quote of $1700 from my dealership for the 09 328i coupe. This is for the Extended Maintenance plan.

Is this a reasonable amount of money to spend ?

Does this extended warranty plan cover something going horribly wrong with the car or just oil changes and regular maintenance.

Am I covered against wiper system failure, light bulb blowout and those kind of things.

The extended warranty is different from Extended maintenance plan.

If I am right..the Extended maintenance takes your factory maintenance coverage (oil changes, brake jobs, wipers, pretty much everything except for new tires ofcourse - is what my agent told me) upto 100k/6Yrs. SO yeah I would say the wipers system and light bulb blow outs should be covered.

Extended warranty is different and it extends the warranty on big stuff like engine, tans and the likes to 100k/6Yrs is my understanding. I already have the extended warranty buying a CPO :-)

ALL it covers if the very bare minimum as described in the BMW maintenance schedule.

ONLY listed items.
2 oil chanes with filters, maybe a brake job (depending on how you drive and when they were done before the 50k one expired, maybe a brake flush and an air filter. Are people realy excited about wipers?

Speaking of wipers (and a mini thread hijack), do you find that the rain-x are the best for a 2011 model? The wipers that come on the vehicle are crap and last 3-4 months tops here in New England before streaking.

My friend paid 850 to get the wiper assemble changed last week that's why I asked. If we're NOT covered against anything costing over 500, then its a useless plan.

the maintenance plan will not replace a "broken wiper assembly".

The maintenance plan will ONLY cover wiper blades IF YOU ARE ALREADY IN FOR SERVICE FOR SOME OTHER SCHEDULED VISIT. blades need to be streaking. (Or you tell the SA "yeah, last time it rained the wipers were streaking" )

I just use stock. the brutal winters here arent.

Hey there, Zuma. I have gotten really good pricing from Dan Dutton (a forum sponsor, works out of Pacific BMW). My issue with the extended maintenance is some items are not in I-drive, and you have to insist that they are taken care of. The most notable item is the transmission service. Plugs are another one of these items. If they changed out the rotors with EVERY brake job, the issue becomes something to consider. If you have a good indy, do what I do, buy the parts at Tischer, and bring to your indy shop.
