2010 BMW 328i purchase

After driving an '03 E-39 (530i), I just came across a great looking vehicle and purchased her. 2010 BMW 328i Manual transmission. She is in the CPO program till February 2016. Normal 4 year coverage till February 2014.

This vehicle drives outstanding. The 530i was and is an outstanding vehicle in itself, but I wanted to experience the manual transmission and I am very pleased with it. 6 gears, wow...

Blue Water Metallic with Saddle Brown Dakota Leather, dark bur walnut trim.. Beautiful.

What is your opinion on purchasing the extra 2 year full maintenance package for a little over $2,000.00? This would include full maintenance just as the original 4 year / 50,000 mile for an additional two years (Feb. 2016 or 100,000 miles?

Thanks for your feedback on the warranty protection coverage.

Do you think you will put in more than 50K miles in next few years? If so then it'w worth the upgrade the maint program.

Congrats on the new purchase!

$2,000 will buy a lot of wiper blades and oil changes. Brakes are probably the tipping point. How are the brakes now, when will you need and will you need 2 brake jobs during the period of the warranty?

Don't know if the maintenance will cover a new battery (or if its under the CPO) but you might need one of those too.

After a lease generally they replace the brakes and tires. If that's done, the only warranty is the way you drive it and the proper maintenance. You can cover wipers, battery and other nick nacks with the 2 grand you saved.
