What about 2003?

$995 seems like a decent deal for 50K more maintenance. Do you think that they will offer this on 2003 model year in the future? Any chance of offering BMW backed extended warranties? I just bought a 2003 325i Sport. I guess I should change my screen name.

I would expect this to be a rolling program. They'll probably offer it on MY2003 after the MY2005 BMW's are released, but that is just a guess on my part.

Ok... so is that $399 to go to 4/50, and then another $995 to go to 6/100?

Where do I go to get upgraded? Timing couldn't be better... 26k miles, 2.5 yrs into ownership.

Alee,

You pay a one time fee for which ever program you choose, 4/50 or 6/100.

To activate the program, just pay a visit to your favorite BMW center after Jan 12.

Do these plans extend the maintenance AND the warranty, or just the scheduled maintenance? I understand that they'll pay for new rotors or an oil change, but how about if something breaks, like window regulators or the door seal? I would definitely buy the 6/100 plan if it covers both...thanks for any info!

Just spoke with my service advisor ... according to him, if you have the 4/50 maintenance then it's 995 to go to the 6/100, but if you only have the 3/36 then it's 1384.

I guess either way it's still a bargain.

This program covers only maintenance on the vehicle. You probably already have a 4/50 warranty.

Window regulators would be a warranty issue. I would expect door seals could be a warranty issue, but that will depen on whether it's wear & tear or failed in some way.

O.K. how about this. I have 40K on my 2000 328i so I just expired out of the maintenance qualification clause. My car was purchased at 12K miles as a CPO to 6yr/100K. Is there any provision allowed for CPOs to reinstate the maintenance program as long as we followed the service plan at the dealership?

  • MY 2000 - 2002, All other BMW Models including M's, $1195

Even without the warranty piece, this is probably a good deal if you get your Inspections done at the dealer. Between 50 and 100K there is likely an Inspection II at 60K and an Inspection I at 90K, plus an oil change in between at 75. The last Inspection I I had done was a bit more than $500, and an Inspection II would likely be more.

Throw a set of brakes or a clutch somewhere in there, and you're really doing well.

Is it transferable if you decide to sell the car?

To qualify the existing maintenance plan must not be expired.


Sorry,

It's an extended maintenance program only.

Does the dealer make any money off these extended maintenance contract sales? Wondering if there's (a) room for competitive shopping, and (b) if the dealer does make money off this, it would influence who I go to when buying the contract.

I read on another forum that as of 1/12 the extended maintenance would be included as part of a CPO purchase. Right, or wrong?

They probably will wait to announce the 2003 program once they have more data re: warranty claims for MY2003 so they can adjust the price accordingly

From my review of the information available, the dealer has the choice of including extended maintanance on a CPO vehicle purchase. Review the CPO window sticker to determine if it's included. If not, you could always use this option in your negotiations.

As long as you are talking about a 3 series the answer is yes.

Grrr, jumping the gun I guess. I called my dealer and he said it started today but they don't have any contracts yet. He'll call me back when they get them in.

This is excellent news! Who in their right mind wouldn't get this 6 year plan if they are planning on keeping their car?! It'd be stupid if you didn't!

Contracts? I haven't done one yet, but I believe it's done electronically now. We just got a bulletin that the system should be up no later than tomorrow.

Maybe that's what he meant. All I know is I want it and I couldn't do it today.
