It should be covered, even in the powertrain plus since those parts are needed for the mechanical operation of the car and not considered wear and tear.

For the e60 M5, you're correct. Warranty options are limited. I'd recommend contacting Bruce M. he can hook you up or point you in the right direction.

What I would be concerned about in your prior post - the exclusion of the following:
Quote:
Valve grinding, valve guides, burnt valves, stuck valves, burnt piston, and/or stuck rings are not covered.

Any repair for the purpose of correcting engine compression, correcting oil consumption, or the gradual reduction of performance when a Breakdown has not occurred.
Damage caused by pre-ignition detonation, pinging, improper/contaminated fuel including fuels containing more than 10% ethanol (if the engine was not manufactured for this mixture), excessive fuel conditions, lean fuel conditions, clogged fuel injectors, improper lubricants or improper engine adjustments.

Breakdown caused by or due to the failure of nuts, bolts or fasteners (internal and/or external).
Nuts, bolts or fasteners are covered in conjunction with a covered repair that arises from a Breakdown of a Covered Part.
EGR purge valve/solenoids/sensors, vacuum canister, vapor return canister, vapor return lines/valves, air pump/lines/valves,

also 5soko,

There is a warranty contract booklet for Gold and Platinum. Read those if you can acquire one, even a sample one from the dealer. It it lists what is excluded.

I did email Bruce a few times and talked to him once but with his busy schedule, I couldn't get a reply from him! Anyways, here are my findings:

THIS PLAN IS THE BEST EXCLUSIONARY BUMPER-TO-BUMPER COVERAGE AVAILABLE.

Warranty Offered By: Auto Advantage Inc.
Underwriter: This coverage is directly underwritten by Amtrust Group ("A/Excellent" rated by AMBest) for the highest level of financial security

Auto Advantage Inc. offers you many benefits our competition can't promise including the following...
* Extended Warranties direct to consumers and dealerships nationwide at wholesale prices has been our business since our inception in 1979.
* We offer only Premium, Top-Rated vehicle Warranties.
* No Gimmicks, No Coupons and No Up Selling tactics, ever!
* Our high volume and low overhead allows us to offer the LOWEST PRICES RIGHT FROM THE START for the most comprehensive coverage available for your vehicle.
* Our company is owned and staffed by Warranty Experts, Not Salespeople or Telemarketers.
* We understand the three most important words "Yes, It's Covered"!

PLEASE PRINT THIS E MAIL!

Thank you for your request for a price quote for an extended warranty. The price below is for an "Exclusionary" Bumper-to-Bumper warranty. This is the most comprehensive policy available and INCLUDES Covered Breakdowns due to WEAR & TEAR. Just non-covered parts are excluded. (See policy exclusions at bottom of email).

*** Policy starts from the date of policy purchase zero miles.

Ref. # RYBC530401000 (12)
Exclusionary Bumper-To-Bumper Coverage
$100.00 Deductible Per Repair Visit
3 Year/ 75,000 Total Odometer Miles- $4,245.00
3 Year/100,000 Total Odometer Miles- $4,965.00
4 Year/ 75,000 Total Odometer Miles- $4,720.00
4 Year/100,000 Total Odometer Miles- $5,340.00
5 Year/ 75,000 Total Odometer Miles- $5,020.00
5 Year/100,000 Total Odometer Miles- $6,040.00
Other Deductibles Are Also Available
Low Down Payment Financing Available
This warranty starts from the *zero mileage and from the *date of policy purchase.
(Example: a 4 Year/100,000 Mile warranty on a 2010 vehicle with 45,000 miles would get you 4 additional years of coverage from the day you purchase the warranty or until the vehicle reaches 100,000 miles.)

This Coverage Also Includes:
* Towing
* Rental
* Lockout Service
* 24 Hour Roadside Assistance
* One Deductible Per Repair Visit
* All Warranties Are Transferrable & Renewable.

For further information please call me at 1-800-933-9190, or email me at [email protected] . If you would like to see a sample contract we be happy to provide one for you. Thanks again for your interest. We hope we can be your warranty source both now and in the future.

Policy Exclusions:
(The parts listed below are not covered. Therefore any part not listed is covered under this coverage per the terms of this agreement):
Normal maintenance, service and parts described in the Vehicle’s Manufacturer’s Maintenance Schedule engine tune-up, suspension alignment, wheel balancing, filters, lubricants, engine coolant, fluids, spark/glow plugs, brake pads, linings, shoes, drums and rotors except when damaged by a covered part. Manual transmission clutch assembly, and manual and hydraulic linkages. Light Bulbs, battery, exhaust system/catalytic converter, safety restraint systems, cellular telephones, video entertainment systems, anti-theft systems, and any equipment not installed by the vehicle manufacturer.

Hal J. Moses
President
Auto Advantage Inc.

Anyone ever deal with Hal over at Auto Advantage Inc? He has been super in getting back to me with all of the questions.

I am not sure if forking up $6K on a 7 year old car is worth it? After doing tons of research I found that the most common thing to go on the E60 is the "SMG Hydraulic Pump" (which I don't think anyone covers anyways, and the clutch and the flywheel assembly and other misc parts) BTW: Any advise on where to source these parts from? Dealer wants big money for them.

Also, the VANOS issue and I saw a thread which mentioned a Recall but I never got the letter and my dealership has never mentioned anything over the past few years. Even though I always ask whether there is any sort of a recall on my vehicle! Has anyone gotten the VANOS issue covered under extended warranty? If yes, then please refer the name of the company and the seller.

Please contact me with any warranty information at: [email protected]

Thanks,
Sean

I received a quote from this same company for my 2008 M5. In my quote, the premiums were higher and the deductible was $500. When I told him I saw others with a better quote, he said he had mistakenly quoted an M5 without the V10, and had to withdraw the quote. Was that you?

Thumbs down Good and cheap warranties for M5 & M6

Hello all,I'm brand new here and it looks like I will be trading in my 2008 Lexus LS460 for a 2006 M5 with about 33k on the clock. I did a lot of research here and other places looking for best prices on a warranty for this car and was shocked at some of the quotes I was coming across. Today I think I found the gem that can help all of you who are searching for a warranty for your M5 or M6.While checking around for best interest rates a local credit union, I found out that they also provide used car warranties. I demanded an exclusionary warranty and they do offer it through their Platinum plan. It covers the SMG pump and everything but the normal wear items. Believe it or not, a 5 yr/60k mile warranty with a $250 deductible is just $2562 for this car. A 4 yr/48k plan is $1762. I don't even have to be a member of the credit union to obtain these prices.You may want to see if your local credit union is part of the CUNA network as you may be able to get prices this low. I'm sure it depends on milage at the time of purchase, but I thought I throw this out to you so you have the info. It looks like I'll be motoring around in an M5 this Saturday. I'll keep you folks updated.Dave

I got the loan for the M5 today & pick up the car tomorrow. I made a mistake on warranty cost. The 5 yr/60k mile bumper to bumper warranty cost is $1902. Going to a 5 yr/75k warranty is $2531 based on this car's miles, both based on $250 deductible. The warranty is with Consumer Program Administrators, Inc. Coverage is not retroactive and the miles and time start at the time I pick up the car.
