Hi all. I just bought my first BMW M5 f10. It’s a 2016 and has 22k miles. I have 6 months left on the warranty and wanted to get some forum advice on what extended warranty options are available / best value. Appreciate the advice!

Probably useful to know what country/state you're in as I'm sure that things are different on our side of The Pond to the USA, for instance...

But welcome to the club anyway.

Wish I could give you a definitive answer, but this depends on your service advisor and the particular dealership. A blown speaker is one of those things that often goes due to misuse (cranking the volume too high, obviously). Just go in and complain of a buzzing noise from the speaker. Do NOT claim you have a blown speaker, because knowing too much about the problem often equates to knowing how the problem happened in the first place, if you know what I mean.

I have chosen to go without an extended warranty and instead have a private mechanic who does work on weekends and used to be a BMW service technician. The warranty is a better choice for a catastrophic failure, but I don't like counting on that. The warranties I was presented with were very pricey and were not meant to cover any "bumper to bumper" type of activity. I'll let you know later if I regret doing that. :D
