BMW F30 Ext. Warranty

Hi there, ho there. Has anyone purchased an extended warranty for their BMW F30? If so how much did you pay? How does payment work? Did you pay for the warranty all at once, or did you tack it on w/ financing? I'm probably going to get one from the dealer, I only intended to keep my car for a year, but I've decided to keep it until it explodes (which may be in the near future). I've got the basic 4yr/50k, and I'm at 36,400 miles right now. I've got a 2014 BMW 320i, that I drive a lot!

Seems I read most buy the extended warranty at some point before they hit 4yrs/50k.

To extend to 6yr/100k usually runs ~$2,400 but many negotiate down to perhaps ~$2,000-2,200.

F30 extended warranty and maintenance price

I guess my reply came a little late, but just for others who are shopping for BMW extended warranty for their F30 here is what I paid:
Vehicle: 2013 335i MSport Line F30
BMW Platinum Extended Vehicle Protection for 5 yrs/ 100,000 miles (i.e. additional 1 yr/50k miles) = $2650 (after a $200 bundle discount with the BMW maintenance plan)
BMW Maintenance Program for additional 1 yr/ 25,000 miles = $875

This is by far the cheapest quote I got from 3 dealers in Houston, TX area. I bought those contracts from Momentum BMW in Katy. I am a high mileage commuter that's why I am getting only 5 years. If you are a low miler then look into 7yr/100k which will probably cost $400 more.
I will make my money back on maintenance on the next rear brake job which typically costs ~$1000

By the way before you buy the warranty, carefully review the contract first so you understand that NOT everything is covered:

I am assuming you were referring to the basic powertrain warranty, not the Gold or Platinum because I checked a month ago from multiple dealers the prices for 6yr/100k Platinum were over $3000 for 335i F30. And that's after discounts from the MSRP.

I paid $3K last month for the Platinum 6yr/100K with my 2015 F31. It was originally $4K but I am guessing that even at $1K off the dealer was still making money.

I looked at the attachment and saw what IS not covered, which is a A LOT. So for $3k, what is covered???

Extended warranty discussed here is for failures not regular maintenance and wear and tear. Platinum has excellent coverage but at a premium. I ended up buying from Allstate. Got more years than BMW offers and slightly better coverage and flexibility (2010 x5d).

is there any BMW warranty that includes maintenance or that is solely present in the original 4 year/50k warranty? Have you used the AllState warranty on your 2010 x5d? How many miles are on your SUV?

BMW sells maintenance package separately. I paid $875 for an additional 1 year/25k miles for my 2013 335i. There is no warranty plan out there, BMW or third party, that give coverage like the new vehicle 4 yr/50k warranty.

$875 for an extra year/25k miles sounds like a great deal!! Considering a few oil changes and brakes/rotors and youve easily made the $875 back!

I didn't realize I could get a 5Y/100K warranty. Good to know! These were the best numbers I received for my 2015 328i with under 10K miles. One dealership quoted me a gold package $1200 higher than the quote below.


6 Year / 70,000 miles - Powertrain Plus (Blue) $1561, Gold $2198, and Platinum $2436
7 Year / 100,000 miles - Powertrain Plus (Blue) $1940, Gold $2830, and Platinum $3160

John Andrews quoted me $3080 for 5 yrs/100k, basically it will add 1yr and 50k miles to my existing warranty for platinum coverage
