E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

128i extended maintenance question

New to this, so please be patient.
I am buying a 2010 128i coupe w/ 10K miles (fleet car). Still has 1 year left on BMW warranty. Thoughts on buying extended third party warranty (Carmax) vs. BMW gold warranty-7yrs/70k miles? I will only drive approx. 10k miles a year.
Thanks for your thoughts and comments

Food for thought; the companies that offer extended warranties are in business because they make a profit. That means that for their average customer, they are taking more money than they pay out.

extended maintenance

I considered the same thing after buying a 2010 128i w/18,000 mi. I got on line and inquired about extended maintenance and found very few people happy with their agreements and a lot regretting they spent the money because the companies refused to pay off. I declined the offer to purchase one and am very happy.

Extended warranty question

Atomic Drifter,

Thanks for your reply. I ended up going the CPO route on a different 128, so a third party extended warranty wasn't needed. I would be interested in hearing how well BMW stands behind their CPOs.

Be aware CPO will not cover for all items on vehicle.

I like extended warranties on BMWs. Let them make a profit sometimes, and let them buy me a new engine sometimes. Easy sleeping.

But, for me, no third party stuff.

OEM extended warranty or roll the dice.
