Hi everyone

I was just wondering if anyone on here has ever used warrantywise?

Thinking about taking out a policy with them, so just wanted to know peoples reviews/experiences with them

Thanks

I'm 2007 on 97k been quoted 78pm with a 200 excess on the most comprehensive cover from mondial. It's not cheap but I don't think anyone has had an issue with correct me if I'm wrong.

My 08 335i @ 47k when quoted now 52k costs me 50 per month with 100 excess (this is fully comp and covered up to the full car value and I also have BMW breakdown included). I have used it with no issues (Fuel pressure regulator, Boost control solenoid and aux belt tentioner so far. You must have full service history from VAT registered garages (they will require proof).

Funny i'm on their website right now. I'm looking at something similar (mine is a MY56 plate). Interested to know if they'd cover the HPFP and Water pump in a 9.5year old car.

Isn't the HPFP covered for 120k miles regardless of whether or not you have cover?

Don't know. No one has ever been able to confirm or deny, from what I've seen on here.

I guess it is not - http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...=HPFP+warranty

However I am sure that your HPFP is covered under the warranty - see here https://www.bmw.co.uk/dam/brandBM/ma...3958020731.pdf

I guess you mean by the below statements:

Fuel system: Fuel injection pump,
pump drive gear, lift pump, fuel pump
relay, fuel system electronic control
unit, solenoids, throttle potentiometer (GOOD WORD!!),
idle control valve and fuel pressure
regulators. (Excluding fuel injectors/
glow plugs).

Cooling system: Water pump,
viscous fan coupling, radiator and
expansion tank, oil cooler, heater
matrix, cooling fan motor.


However...

Applicable to all levels of
component cover
Wear and tear exclusions
As the insured vehicle’s age and
mileage increases, more components
will reach the end of their serviceable
life due to normal wear and tear.
These components will require
replacement at your cost and will not
be reimbursed under this policy.

What is the definition of 'Serviceable life'? When I spoke to BMW about a similar thing on my Z4, they said that 60k+ was past serviceable life for most things.

They seem to replace turbos left right and centre and heres a post quoted from another thread (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...76020&page=2):

"Originally Posted by stringy93
Mines 41 a month with a 100 excess, I took mine out at 59,8k to get the cheaper rate because it almost doubles at 60k. I've had it 3 months and already had a new clutch and flywheel, can't fault the service there was no arguments about paying out. As mentioned I think it has a lot to do with the relationship you have with your dealer because they will be fighting your corner."

Over 60k and they changed the clutch and flywheel (flywheel failed) which are items of wear and tear. I wouldn't worry too much, they normally do not argue and just get on with it.

If the failiure is due to wear and tear they will not replace it. However, if HPFP failiures were only due to wear and tear no one would have had any problems as the problem is due to a design flaw (hence the recall)

Wear and tear is things like clutch, brakes, suspension etc... Parts that no longer work due to being worn out. For example shock absorbers just wear out over time.

Items in the engine bay should last over 100k miles and I think the "serviceable life" for an engine in BMW eyes is something like 160k-180k IIRC. You wouldn't expect to have to buy new pistons, new turbos etc and servicing should keep these parts running, that is after all the entire point of servicing. Thus when turbos fail, it does suggest service intervals aren't short enough. And things like waste gate on the 335i is a failure of the part, rather than the driver.

On the topic of clutch, if its worn out, its your bill, if mechanical parts fail and cause it not to work the warranty pays.

Yes, if the clutch fails due to being worn out. If however as mentioned above it fails due to something not relating to wear then they will replace it all.

doesn't matter how much you pay per month, they will do their best not to pay out. in my experience with them they were a complete pain in the backside and always put everything down to wear and tear! the garage then has to prove it on your behalf which is a pain for them! saying that all companies in this trade are the same!!! I also have an AA policy and they are generally very good!
