Mein Auto: 2009 650 Convertible
Anyone else have an opinion on getting an extended warranty? 2009 650 vert. 13K mls.

Anyone have any advice: just bought a 2009 650 convertible with 13,000 mls. One owner, clean record, mint condition. Drives like a dream and no problems....yet.

Warranty expires March 2013. Do i get an extended warranty? If the answer is yes, which one should i get?

I could afford an expensive repair once in a while but don't want to be dumping $$ in the car frequently. I am concerned that with the low miles, i may not really need the warranty for a long time but if i don't buy the warranty by a certain date after March, i cant get it or there will be some kind of limitations on it.

What to do?

First congrats. Second, I would recommend getting an extended warranty - specifically for any major components. Start with your dealership- do some research on the company that provides the insurance they resell.

Also, if you have a good relationship with your SA, ask him/her about whether they are worth their value.

There are a number of discussions on this topic in the main 6 forum. Do a search there on "extended warranty". There are some real stories with results.

Actually BMW in Fla offers a Liberty Mutual extended warranty that I got with my 2007 650i.....you have a choice on the type of coverage and deductable.....I paid a bit more for the 100,000 6 yr bumper to bumper warranty.....I have used it a number of times without any problem. Sensors are covered.....

J,

Thanks for the info but I called Liberty Mutual and they say do not carry an "extended warranty" product. They said they only provide regular auto insurance but bcs. they are a "preferred" BMW insurance provider, that you get some extra perks. So unless they are not telling me something, I don't think this counts as a true extended warranty.

Have a look at auto-Pom. I went with them and I've seen good comments about them.

Hey,

I have AutoPom and I must say, it's a money saver as well as a piece of mind!

With ur car mileage i would prefer Platinum from BMW. Peace of mind. Fast and easy. I got 09' but mine 60k miles now. Lucky that I choose BMW. My Nav DVD got problem twice. It would cost me 5000 without the warranty.

Backed by BMW, no third party issues, just go to the bimmer dealer...car fixed ......Best $3.6 or $4.3 you'll ever spend!

Yes, you need to act BEFORE the original warranty expires, or the coverage is substantially reduced.
