Extended warranty

Hello, Does anyone know a good 3rd party extended warranty company that covers most BMW components (740i in my situation)? I have been reading mixed reviews of this car so I definitely want to have extra coverage needed if something breaks. Too bad Route66 doesn't offer any coverage for this car, but if you know any other company which is as good as Route66, please let me know.

Thanks,

Try a search, there have been some threads on this topic. Just don't let your vehicle go out of warranty beforehand.

Search! I'd personally recommend Fidelity! They've paid over 50K in repairs on my 760 without a problem!

I just bought one from AutoPom and they sold me Mercury, which came highly recommended. Paid about $4300 which covers everything including the radio, NAV, camera, etc. I have a $50 deductible. Paid 10% down and financed the rest over 2 years. Last for 5 years or 80k miles on the odo. I'm selling the car at 80k regardless so it's good for me. I'll probably pick up a 2014 in 2016 if I can or a Panamera. Really like the Panny to be honest but it has to be the V8.

You can purchase from the dealer, but it was really expensive, like around $2-3k more than what I paid.

Since my car is only 3 mths old I opted for the 1 from BMW direct. I dont even know if I could even buy aftermarket warr at this time. But buying it directly from bmw, there shouldnt ever be any problems having it covered.

I know 1 aftermarket warranty from that my froend at BMW always talks highly at BMW is COVERAGE ONE. Supposedly its a straight drop-off/pick-up warranty. Hassle free.

Thanks all for your help! Got my 740i yesterday so feeling really good about it. I still have about 10K miles before BMW's basic warranty expires. I wanted to shop/compare for what is being offered with multiple companies. I guess it really bowls down to two things:

1) what is being covered, e.g, the more components it covers the more it will be

2) company reputation/years in service and its process to approve a claim

BMW extended coverage is nice but its costs almost 50% more if not less. Also on the same note, what do you think about their maintenance plan? For the type of car it is, do you think it is worth having one? I have had things like oil change, leaking oil and all 4 break changes to my 5 series last year totaling well over $2,000. With this 7 series, I am sure the cost will be even more once I go over 6,000 miles mark.

Guys on the Panamera forums advise Century via Costco (the best I heard). Mercury is very good as well. Try 5 star as well.

Costco

It doesn't look like Costco is offering this any longer. I wonder why...

Really? wow. You can still use Century. Costco discount was $500 from what I have heard. They say Century is the best company out there.
