6k is fair in my opinion...you have 25k miles more than I do..mine is 4 and 50..and I paid 4300 plus 400 on interest ..24 months

Fantastic price, I'd ask them to put something in writing to confirm whether they will fund a clutch replacement as that will easily go into 1.5k+.

I want to share my experience in transferring a BMW extended vehicle protection plan. Mine was at the gold level.

This warranty can only be transferred from a private party. If dealers are involved the warranty cannot be transferred - in this case the owner of the warranty gets a refund. Even though BMW dealers can look up the warranty on their computers, the warranty does not follow the owner of the car.

The transfer process is quite cumbersome. They require four things: the original service contract (have the seller get it from the dealer they bought the contract from), a notarized copy of request for transfer of coverage (this is the most cumbersome part), a bill of sale, and $50 transfer fee. If the seller advertises a car with BMW extended vehicle protection, make sure you get all these things rom the seller before you complete the transaction. The notarized copy of request for transfer of coverage is usually where people get hung up on because of the notarization.

I'm about to get an out of warranty '08 6 speed and get aftermarket coverage. One of my top choices is an early production '08 that hasn't had the DSC disabling software uploaded into it. From a 2010 thread I saw posts of no issues with this upgrade. I only bring it up because I'm going to get an aftermarket warranty (Fidelity Platinum or Easy Care TotalCare) and do the DSC disable. My concern is if something unrelated happens soon after all this, the warranty company will incorrectly blame it on DSC disabling (which from another post sounds like other software gets updated).

Anyone ever look into this issue or has feedback? I'd hate for the warranty to blame any imminent repair on DSC disable and consider the disable as a modification that could void warranty.

Upon a Google search it appears that the DSC disable feature is officially supported by BMW so you're good. Also, I wouldn't go to the dealership for repairs unless you're on good terms with SA. Make friends with an independent authorized repair facility and get them to fix your car without the runaround. The insurer will typically send an adjuster out for larger repairs and the software is the last thing they'll check.

IMO, 08 w/ 6psd doesn't quite justify $4K+ warranty. You will likely replace VANOS once, but even that is DIY. With aftermarket warranty, it is safe to assume that you cannot change anything, period (although software is gray area).

Anybody have coverage with Nissan's QualityGuard Plus warranty? I'm looking to get one on an 08 manual sub 50k mileage and QualityGuard is 40% cheaper than Fidelity on a 4 yr and 25% cheaper on a 6 yr. Both exclusionary policy. I haven't done a word for word compare but if both exclusionary can't imagine much difference.

I saw a Feb 2013 post on this but it was a short thread...I was hoping to see if there's a few of you out there with good experience on QualityGuard.

Ok, I did a search and didn't find the answer I was looking for. I'm hoping I can get my answer from this sticky before I have to make a thread of my own.

I purchased my M5 almost three years ago from a dealership in southern California. I certainly did not do my due diligence as I paid over $4000 for a 4 years, 50,000 mile NAC warranty. With all the horror stories I've heard from M5 and personally from a M6 owner, I do not want to own this beast out of warranty.

My first option is to sell the Beast at some point in the next year while the warranty is still active.

I'd rather keep it however, so my second option is to try and price out an extension to my extended warranty.

Has anyone tried to do this before? What kind of rates can I expect for a late 05 build, 2006 M5 with almost 42,000 miles on the clock?

Thank you in advance!

This question gets asked a ton. Its crazy expensive and some places won't even let you extend.
