    Re: Extended Warranty

    Warranty is 4 years, 50,000 miles whichever comes first. Its in your manual package (separate little booklet). Obviously, yours is going to be the time limit. I purchased both warranty and maintenance as I do 22k miles a year and am at 75k now (BMW bundled and a little laess than what you are being offered). I have used both but have yet to "breakeven". Only 25k miles left and I'll hopefully still not breakeven - prefer if I don't have to use it either.

    Yes it is a risk so you are buying insurance as I did, but I think we over reacted to potential high cost repairs as the real failure rates are far less especially starting with the MY05.

    Extended Warranty

    Hello fellow 6ers.
    My 05 645ci (Garage Queen) with 17k miles is reaching its 3year ownership in two weeks. The dealer is offering me a 3rd party extended warranty for $4,500 plus a $200/ded. I'm not sure about the cost benefits as I've had very minor problems with the car in the past 3 years. The dealer is pitching the fear factor and throwing out transmission, electrical, GPS, radio etc costs of repair. I don't have plans of selling the car anytime soon but don't want a car with problems either. I'm stuck on deciding to get the warranty or not. Out here in CA, I'm seeing used 07's selling for $40k due to the economy. BTW, I did purchase the Mtce warranty for 7yrs 100k 3 years ago but that only covers maintenance. Also, why is my warranty only 3yrs and not 4yrs? Am I being fed a line? Whats your opinion? Extend the warranty or Not? Help me decide.
