There are TWO warranties on our cars. An Extended Warranty (similar to what the "normal" person thinks of as a "Warranty"), and an Extended Maintenance Program (for free service) ... differnet beasts ...
Both BMW versions require a signup prior to expiration of the car's original warranty (who was the original owner may play a part in whether one can qualify ... and, a CPO is a different beast, as well).
I paid $ 2368 for a BMW Extended Maintenance Warranty and could have gotten it for $ 1,195.00 if I had shopped around (any dealer can sell it to you ... it is a warranty on the car). I paid $ 3,295.00 for a BMW Extended Warranty from a different dealer (his cost was $ 2,995.00 ... by then I had figured out how to shop around for the best deal). The list price of this warranty was near $ 4,000.
I had heard the the warranty prices (both) had changed at the beginning of 2007.
I found that ard (Adam) was very knowledgable (sp?) on the factory programs.
