Has the price of extended maintanence gone up?

I live in San Francisco and I want to extend the maintenance on my '06 330i and I'm getting quoted $1850.

A couple non-sales guys I talked to at the dealership told me there was a price increase in July, and that they used to be able to do it for $1695 to extend it to 6 years, which is what I thought I would be able to get it for.

So I'm wondering here if I'm just out of luck and will have to eat the $150, or does anybody know if there's an out-of-state dealership that can sell the maintenance to me for less?

Thanks!

My dealership told me in June that the prices would increase.

I think you can and should bargain for a better price. I was offered one for my 2004 for more than $2K. That's just crazy talk!

The problem is that no dealers from SF to LA (all of california, we've tried around 8 of them) are willing to give it to me for less than 1850. This is not just me bargaining, but a licensed dealer friend helping me out with the negotiation.


So I think you may be misinterpreting my request - I'm not looking for hints on what to do because I know a lower price can be had, I want to know specifically if someone knows a dealership out of California that recently sold them something for less. Maybe me and my dealer friend are just bad negotiators, but I think maybe something is just up with the dealers in California. (that's my hope and I don't want to start calling up out of state people unless I know people have recently - after the price increase in June - got them for less)

But anyways, thanks for trying to help guys!

IMO it's not worth it, an extended warranty yes, but maintenance definitely not, especially with the bmw 15k oil change intervals. If you do the brakes yourself you can save a lot of $$.

Agreed, if anything, take the money and put it in the bank. When you need maintenance, just pull from that account. If you do the work yourself, you will save a fortune.

Speak to the Finance Manager at BMW of Macon. He can hook you up for $1695 with no tax.
