Good point! I concur...PropellerHead said:If your buddy got a CPO car, his warranty goes to 100K or 6 years. Most warranty companies will not write a policy for cars that have over 60K miles, or that last much longer than 100K miles.
A faint bell ring leads me to a 7 year 120K by one company, but even then, I wouldn't pay for the 1 year and 20K you'd gain over CPO.
On newer cars, did BMW extend the factory 3/36 to 4/50 without buying the ~$450 upgrade?You have up until the point when there is both a minimum of 1 month, and 1,000 miles remaining onthe factory 4/50 to qualify for one...
There are (2) entirely different discussions going on here.PropellerHead said:

It was still an upgrade on our 2002 330, but i saw what you'd written and seems like I saw something in this month's Roundel, too. Thought I'd clarify.
If your friend is within the 36k miles, I believe most dealers (perhaps Cutter?) will sell him the 1 year, 14k mile extension for around ~$450. Since it is an extension of the BMW new car warranty, it also includes oil changes and is bumper to bumper for things like door seals, radio problems, etc.
Even the earliest delivery of a 2001 would have been around Setember of 2000, so your extension would get you about 2 more depending on how close to 50k miles he already is and how much he drives it.
So if I imply correctly, there is a 4/50 on the drivetrain, engine, big stuff on Bimmers? I had no idea. :thumbup:onthe factory 4/50 to qualify for one...
Right on, right on, right on, right on...PropellerHead said:

So, out of the box, a new bimmer goes like this:
New Bimmer has bumper to bumper "maintenance warranty" for 3/36 that can be extended for ~$450. It includes the big stuff mentioned above being b to b and all.
Beyond that 3/36 maintenace warranty, there is a 4/50 drivetrain offered that you get whether you extend the maintenance or not.
A used Bimmer could have a CPO warranty, while not an extension of the bumper to bumper, does cover most stuff for 6 years / 100K miles from original delivery date. I had a friend who got his MID display replaced bc of lost pixels, fer instance.
Don't get me started on the catalytic converter warranty...
Any of this on target?
