Hendrick Autoguard inc extended warranty for 2008 328i Hard top convertible

Hi all, this forum is great, I used earlier and saved lot of money. I have 2008 328i hard top convertible with only 32,000 miles on it. it is almost 6 year old car with low miles and everything works fine and a great car. Today I went to Hendrick BMW dealer and he is trying to sell me a extended warranty for 4 years and 48K miles which is costing me $3500. He was telling me about how old (6 years) and above cars would get trouble with hard top and all engine parts etc etc.

I bought this recently and maintaining well and planning to keep for another 3 years and may be until 50k - 60K max.

Any one has any bad experiences with hard top convertible when they get older? do you guys really recommend extended warranty for $3500? is there any other places I should try to buy good warranty for less price that covers engine and hard top?

by the way they have 4 plan types; they are powertrain, silver, gold and platinum. the one he is trying to sell me is Gold.

Please help with me your experience. Appreciate your help

Add that $3500 to your current purchase price to get a newer one that is Certified Pre-Owned. That will extend the warranty to 75,000 miles.

It is little late, I already purchased this, I did not think about that.

Check with CarMax they offer a warranty I think mildly connected with the company that will cover your ride for 6 years more and up to 100K miles. In fact do a search on here this topic just came up and if I can find the post will reference it for you. The OP was discussing if this 6 years to 100K miles was worth 2600 bucks. It did cover the top and is an E93. BMW extended warranty is way way way over priced...

Here is the thread title
CarMax extended warranty on 2011 328i E93?

Again do a search of extended warranty companies then do a search of reviews of those companies and read the contract carefully.
I don't think CarMax will sell you their warranty since you didn't buy the car there but there are some good ones out there as reported by other members...
