Mein Auto: 2010 328 XI
2010 328 XI - extended warranty opinions

I have a 2010 BMW 328 XI whose warranty is going to be running out. I want to get ideas/thoughts from other owners if they would recommend getting the extended warrant (and which one).

Also if you were to sell the car; is the extended warrant also transferable.

Extended warranties are statistically a loosing bet, or the dealer wouldn't offer them. But if you are risk averse and the cost of a major repair would give you serious financial hardship then they may make sense.

Do you do any of your own maintenance or repairs? Do you know a reasonable and reliable independent BMW repair shop?

If the answer to both of those questions is no then you may want to ignore the odds and buy the extended warranty.

328i is a pretty reliable ride except for transfer case issues on the all wheel drive model.

Your water pump could fail- $1100 dollars to replace.
Leaking head cover gasket or oil filter housing gasket - $500 bucks to repair.
