Yes, thats correct. All of the BMW plans for all levels (powertrain+, gold, platinum) for all vehicles under 4yr / 50k are from the "in service" date. For me, that's May 2010. For anyone over the 4yr/50k original warranty, only the powertrain+ level is available and the "clock" for those plans is reset to the date you extended the warranty, but they are only offered as 1yr/12k, 2yr/24k or 3yr/36k. Hope that helps.

Ok, that does make more sense, cause I initially thought you meant 7yr/100k additional from what you have now. My quote of $3700 was for 6yr/72k additional coverage. I currently have a 2009 with 28k miles.

The 72k you mention makes sense (since 28+72 = 100) but you may want to check on the additional 6yrs you mentioned. I dont know your "in service" date, but with a 2009, I would guess it was 4 yrs ago. If so, then you would only be adding an additional 2 yrs to your coverage. You may want to look at a quote for the 7/70 plan in which ever level best suits your vehicle's setup.
PS. $3700 even for a platinum 7/70 is kinda high (MSRP?). You can get that plan for as little as $2900, if you shop around.

If I understand you correctly, you got a 10/100 warranty from BMW for $3700? How'd you swing that?

Just to clarify. It's not a 10 year/100k warranty. It's a warranty that will take me up to 10yr/100k.

Has anyone on this forum purchased a Fidelity Platinum extended warranty through a out of state dealership (with no pre-inspection required), but then made claims with it in your own state? If so, what was your experience?

Same story here from Pacific BMW about April 1st price increase - about a month ago I got a quote but procrastinated until today when the new price given by them is now $250 higher.

Try Jeff Steel at passport bmw. He stuck to the $3250 quoted after April 1st (7/100 platinum for 335i) and guaranteed it until June 1st.

I'm buying that one...

I got a quote from him as well that originally matched Pacific (pre price hike) so already sent him an email this morning, if he honors it, he will get my business too

This new rule for under 10K miles and over 10K miles price categories for EW makes no sense - if something breaks after FW expiration, why would it matter when the extended warranty was purchased...unless BMW is betting on the fact that people who buy EW normally do this closer to FW expiration so if after almost 4 years of driving you only have less than 10K on your odometer, the chances that something big breaks are small, consequently it would be less out of pocket for BMW so they offer cheaper price for EW.

I see your logic, but anyone with less then 10k after 4 yrs should be banned from owning a BMW then. LOL
Either way, I'm still curious as to whether this 10k BS is an actual BMWNA thing or just a bunch of dealers (aka. Penske group for example) trying to fleece us for an extra few hundred bucks.

Just heard back from Jeff at Passport BMW and not good news: "As of April 1st, there was a change to the BMW warranty pricing." My 7/70K quote went up by $250 just as Pacific BMW was offering so I guess the price hike is across the board.
I am going with him since it is still cheaper than my local dealer that charges MSRP plus Pacific wanted me to mail my car key to them so they can do mileage reading while picture of the odometer was sufficient for Passport to process the purchase. This sucks, I am just a couple of days late and extra $250 is out of my pocket.

Crap. I got an email from him with a guaranteed quote until June 1st. I wonder if he will still honor it now that the Apr 1st thing appears to be true?

well...he first responded in the morning with the payment instructions and confirming old quote, then, after I sent him my cc authorization he came back with the news about price increase that supposedly he wasn't aware of when responded to me in the morning...

you can try hold him responsible to the guaranteed quote but not sure how much leverage it will give you. I kick myself now for procrastinating that long, my MF is still good until Oct so i thought i had plenty of time. BTW he gave me the same explanation about under/over 10K thresholds so its either indeed change by BMWNA or they all just decided to raise the price.

Am I eligible for extended warranty? My 4yr/50k original warranty ran out a couple months back and I'm the second owner of the car.

Powertrain + coverage still is available from BMW for you unless it has changed since BMW/NA put out some new crap April 1st.

You can buy a 'new' car warranty if you are still within the original factory warranty coverage. If you are out of the manufacturers 'new' car warranty, then you are buying a 'used' car warranty.
New car extended warranties begin with the original 'in-service date' and with odometer sitting on zero, regardless of when you buy it. If the warranty begins with the current date and mileage, then you are buying a used car extended warranty.
New car extended warranties cover a lot more than used car extended warranties.
Manufacturer extended warranties are almost always better than 3rd party warranties. Much better and you don't have to worry about the company going out of business.
The dealership is making money on selling the extended warranty, so try to haggle. Even call around before you buy and talk to different finance (business) managers about what they'd charge if you came in and bought the warranty from them. You may get a better price. If the car is eligible for a new car extended warranty then another BMW can sell you the warranty, but you won't be able to finance it with the car loan.
If it's not eligible for a new car warranty he won't be able to sell the extended warranty, at least not without an inspection which someone will have to pay for (you).
Again, third party extended warranties are often a disappointment, esp for a car like the BMW where costs of repair are particularly high.
Lastly but not least, if you buy from a corporate chain dealership make certain you are talking about a manufacturers warranty not a third party warranty. Corporate stores usually sell their own or 3rd party warranties for additional profit.

Since you're past 4yr/50k, you can't get BMWs EVP (extended vehicle protection) which is very similar coverage to CPO. You would have had to upgrade to EVP before 4yr/50k. Even if you were eligible for EVP, it would only take you up to 100k miles coverage.

However, you can still get an extended warranty through your BMW dealership called Fidelity. The Platinum level warranty actually covers more than BMWs EVP, and all work is done at dealership just like EVP with oem parts. With Fidelity, you can add up to 7yrs/72k more (i think) to your existing scenario...thus meaning 50k + 72k = coverage until 122k miles.

Hope this helps!

How do you go about getting a quote from Fidelity? I am considering buying an 09 that is out of warranty but less than 10k miles and interested in a quote. Thanks.

You buy the Fidelity warranty through the finance manager at the bmw dealership. Call...

Matt Verost
Business Manager
BMW of Myrtle Beach
843-848-6800

He'll give you the best deal by far on a fidelity warranty!

Also, make sure your state allows you to purchase a warranty from out of state. Some states don't. Mine did.
