Best pricing on extended warranty?

Hi all,
I emailed Daniel Dutton at Pacific BMW about an extended warranty for my 333d because I read a while back that he had sold extended warranties to a lot of folks on this forum. But the email got bounced, so I'm assuming he's not there anymore. Are there other dealers that provide good pricing to forum members here?
Thanks

FYI for BMW warranties the car must now be physically present at the dealer selling the warranty. No more sweet deals over email.

Price collusion to keep some dealers from selling at a discount.

My car will be at 50k within the next month or so and after reading the posts on here I'm seriously thinking about purchasing the BMW Extended Gold Plan for another 2 years/50k miles.
This is my daily driver so I need the peace of mind that I won't need to fork out a lot of money in the event of a major repairs.

I was thinking about purchasing the extended warranty a few months ago and should have done it then before the rules got changed. I'm going to call up my local dealers in the next coming days to see what prices they quote me.

Has anyone recently purchased the 6/100k Gold Plan? What was the best price that you got? How much below RRP should I be aiming for? Any advice would be appreciated. You can PM me if you don't want to post up how much you paid.

I'd go a step further. call/e mail any dealer you will be near on buisness, vacation or local in the time remaining on your warranty. That is what I did. N4S

That's a really good price for the 7/100k, how long ago did you purchase it? I got a couple of prices so far and for the Gold 6/100k the prices are all over 3k.

Where did you buy the warranty from? Did you get a quote for the Gold 6/100k?

Good point, I will reach out to all the dealers in CA to get their pricing. I guess it all just depends on how much profit the dealer wants to make out of it.

Do you mean the rule allows a warranty buyer be present but without the car itself? What does a dealer do with the car anyway for warranty purchase? Thanks.

The rule now (it was changed recently) is that the car itself has to be at the dealer selling the warranty. The selling dealer doesn't do anything to the car.They just look at it and read the milage. In my case we have what you would call two dealers that are really local (say an hour or so away) but when I added up the dealers near where we would be taking the car for vacation, buisness trips, family visits this last Summer it came out to more than 20 dealers.

I got warranty from Dan around August last year.
He gave quote of 2490 for 6/100 gold. At that time I sent key and payment and got warranty. Seems like other dealers complained about Remote purchasing.

That is a really good price. If someone offered it to me at that price today I would jump on it. So far I'm getting RRP or very close to it.

I got the same deal. My SA gave me a funny look first time I used it, then shrugged it off.
