The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Calling Lexington, KY owners

Hey my Lexington Bretheren! I wanted to get your input on extended warranty vs. going bare. Specifically, your experience with or without extended warranty at our local dealership vs. going bare and using an independent garage. The CPO on my '08 vert expires in May of 2014 and I'm trying to weigh options. Your opinions are welcome.

Hey Joe, great to see another lexingtonian here on the fest!

I always have this debate when my car is coming off warranty, and so far I have chosen to go without every time. I am thousands of dollars ahead as a result! My dad always told me, in reference to casinos, that "the house wasnt built on winners". I believe that the same applies to a warranty.

I can very highly recommend a place called Motorsports here in Lexington. Curt is the owner, and the other main guy is Shane. Tell them David with the M6 sent you! They are very knowledgable, honest, and charge a reasonable rate. You can trust them with your out of warranty BMW.

I would recommend signing up for BMWCCA before your first visit. They give a 10% discount on labor to members, and with these cars that may cover the $50 membership fee on the first visit!

Hope this helps, and please let me know if you have any more questions.

-David

Hey David,
Thanks for the info. I will definitely look into it. My experience with the FX off warranty and dealership repairs really taught me a lesson. See you on the MOW.
