Yes they do. I belive there are two warranty available. 1. for full Service warranty 2. full maintenance warranty. Service warranty will cover oil change and such while full maintenance warranty is the same warranty that is cover under the 4yr/50k warranty. Both warranty are for 2 additional years or 50k additional miles or 6yrs/100k miles. The quote i got for the service warranty i believe was for $1250 and $2500 for full maintenance warranty.

I am not sure. I know he offered me 2 different service plan. I was not really listening because I was not interested in getting it. But I know they have extended available.

Garage List

Per BMWUSA website-

Optional upgraded protection for your BMW vehicle

BMW Maintenance Program upgrade 6 years/100,000 miles of protection
All new BMW vehicles include BMW’s Full Maintenance program standard. Depending on the model year of your BMW, you’re covered for a period 4 years/50,000 miles (2003 and newer) from original date of purchase whichever comes first or 3 years/36,000 miles* (2000-2002). To help keep your vehicle functioning at peak form, BMW now offers a Maintenance Program upgrade of 6 years/100,000 miles of coverage. This upgrade can be purchased at any time during the original Full Maintenance period. Certified Pre-Owned BMWs currently covered by the original Full Maintenance program are also eligible for these upgrades. 2000-2002 models currently covered by 3 years/36,000 miles protection can choose from the 6 year/100,000 miles plan or a 4 years/50,000 miles Maintenance upgrade.

Increase your peace of mind
The BMW Maintenance Program upgrade provides quality service by expert technicians, performed at authorized, participating BMW centers. Your Maintenance Program upgrade covers all factory-recommended maintenance as listed in the BMW Service and Warranty Information booklet. It also includes the replacement of items that are not covered by the BMW Limited Warranty – such as brake pads, brake rotors, wiper blade inserts – when wear and tear exceeds BMW specifications. Any adjustments required due to normal operating conditions are also included. Your BMW is a precision driving instrument that deserves expert care. The Maintenance Program upgrade helps to keep your BMW running its best and helps to maintain its resale value.

* 750 models are covered for 4 years/50,000 miles. Time/mileage based upon whichever comes first. Some exclusions apply. See your authorized BMW or BMW SAV center for details.

In the US... What puck posted is the price for the Full Maintenance upgrade, which covers regular services (oil change, inspection, brake flush, pollen filter, etc.) and wear-and-tear items (brakes) only, but does not cover repairs as it is not a warranty. BMW offers the Original Owner Protection Plan which extends the 4/50 warranty to a 6/100 warranty, and is *completely separate* from the maintenance plan. Most dealerships sell the Full Maintenance upgrade, however, many do not sell the Original Owner Protection plan. The price on the OOPP is steep.

Most dealers would rather sell you an extended warranty from a third party, which will cost less, and still earn them more profit. However, any plan that is not backed by the manufacturer is probably not worth purchasing. For more information, go to the Edmunds boards and do a search for Warranty Gold.

You have until the 4 year/50k mark to decide whether or not to purchase these plans. The only risk is that the price may go up. There is also the risk that you will sell the car before the 4/50 plan is up, and although you can transfer the plan to the next purchaser if you sell the car privately, it have little effect on the sales price of your car. I plan on waiting to see if I keep the car that long.

Based on my own past experience, I don't recommend that most people continue to own a European car past its warranty period. Your mileage may vary--pun intended!
