Any way to purchase a warranty ?

I have a 2006 bmw 325i with 87k miles. Is there anyway I can purchase a warranty anywhere? I plan on having this car for 5+ years.

It will be expensive, not cover much, have many exclusions, and you will pay more than the benefits you get (almost certainly).

The car is fairly old and you won't get a BMW dealer to touch it, so you're going to have to go with a 3rd party insurer, and many of them have been exposed as scammers. To estimate your cost, consider that BMW charges $2000 for 2 years and coverage to 100K miles, for minimal coverage - the Platinum costs around $3000. Take the $5000 (or whatever you discover it will cost) and set it aside for repairs. And don't use the dealer for repairs as they're 25% more expensive than independent shops.

The only winner when you purchase insurance is the person selling it. They know what the odds are and charge so that they make a profit.
