Full Maintenance Warranty for $1400

Is it worth the money to get the full maintenance warranty for an additional 2 years / 50k milages for $1400 from BMW? The warranty only covers oil change, brakes, the typical....no engine components.

if you are indeed going to drive 50k miles, then yes it's worth it

but otherwise no

my salesman was chill, he said "don't buy it it's a waste of your money if you're not going to drive that much"

It depends on how you drive. I didn't think about it until I realized I'm hitting 17K miles in nearly a year. So I would be done w/ the standard warranty in about three years.

However, they charged me nearly 2K.

I don't think I will be getting it. I drive 99% highway... so my cbs says that I won't need brakes for 80k miles!!! That would put me well over 100k miles. If I was confident it would include a full brake job, I would probably do it for $1400.

This is the maintenance contract, not the extended warranty?

I have 2,600 miles on mine, and I'm inclined to roll the dice. I'd want to change the oil more frequently than BMW recommends anyway. I have a relatively tame German car shop nearby if I can't figure out how to change an air filter or something.

that is a cheap price IMO, But I passed on the Maint. plan and ext warranty.
But I have a 06 CPO so I have a warranty till 3/2012 or 100K miles, I just hit 50k 3 days ago.

But it just had oil change, brake fluid change, micro filter, rear pads, wiper blades and new tires put on it b4 I bought it. Only thing is the front pads, but I am going to try and do them myself.

PS how Accurate are the brake pad sensors on the OBC?

As far as I have been told... the maintenance contract includes brakes.

I bought the maint contract specifically for the Brakes; the front rotors and pads were changed at 55,000 and the rears at 65,000. And I got a free service II at 65K. Thus I made out on the big time on the maint contract.

I bought the extended maintenance mainly for the brakes too. Dealer offered it for $995.00 when I bought the car back in May 2007.

I picked up my car with extended maintenance on 07/05 and I now have 60,5XX miles on the car. It is due for a brake job. Not sure if all pads/rotors will be replaced but I am glad I purchased the extended maintenance plan.

I tried to take some pics of my rotors (First 3 pics are the right side front and last pic is right side rear), but I think it was a major fail. Check them out anyways...

Don't waste your money. Find a good indy shop to do the maintenance from now on.
