eXTENDED WARRANTY cOST

Anyone know a dealer who is selling the extended warranty at a decent price? Can anyone tell me what to expect in terms of coverage time and price? I found that extended warranty cost (for the same exact plan) on Lexus autos vary widely at different dealers. It was not just a set price for a particular plan. I am only interested in BMW warranties and not an after-market warranty company.

I was quoted for a 2014 X3:

extended maintenance (6 year 100k miles) for $1995.00

extended warranty (7 year 100k miles Platinum package) for $4350.00

not sure if it is worth it or not, still need to negotiate the final cost………..I go in to pick up the X3 on Saturday

My understanding is that they can be added anytime before the current warranty/maintenance plan ends.

Wow. The Lexus Platinum EW was 8 years ( +4 years after normal warranty ends) 75k for $1880.

I am not comfortable with the 4350 price and probably will pass on it, seems out of line. I will just bank the 4350 and put it towards future repairs.

BMW is insanely expensive for any repair or warranty. We should understand the vehicle price is still comparable to Lexus, MB and Audi, but includes 4 years of servicing. Short term ownership is great, but BMW will get you later with their obscene servicing and repair costs.

I will also waive the extended warranty after my plan expires as well.

$4350 is was too high for me too. Can anyone else please share their input on what they were quoted. I was really hoping it would be around the $2500-3000 for the 7yr 100k miles and that the platinum package I was hoping for too.

Thanks.

The $4350 is +/- $75 of what I paid for my 7/100k Platinum, working with a fair dealership that has never gouged me but also never provided the rock-bottom pricing it seems like people outside the DC area can sometimes achieve. So I'd say $4000 is probably achievable with some haggling and patience.

when I pick up the X3 on Saturday I am going to see if I can get them to come down on the cost, if not it is a NO GO. I will post the update after Saturday.

You can get the extended warranty any time before the OEM warranty runs out -- and you do not have to get it from the selling dealer! Any authorized BMW dealership can sell you this product and it IS negotiable! One of the fest sponsors, Daniel Dutton at Pacific BMW offers a special 'fest price that appears to be about as good as you can get. you might email ddutton@pacificbmw.com for a quote.

This makes me want to lease instead of buy but I don't like the feeling that I will just be "renting" and the vehicle won't actually be mine. sigh. I don't know what to do.
