Bottom line was: I had a injector repair performed on the vehicle prior to buying the warranty. When I made a new claim months and 1000s of happy miles later, they said the damage was a pre-existing condition and "declined to participate" in the repair. I argued the damage couldn't be positively linked to previous repairs and my mechanic also argued on my behalf. I got nowhere fast and hired a lawyer while I set to work on fixing the car. In the end I was refunded my full premium, a goodwill gesture (as they put it), and I fixed my car with much help. I will not be going down the extended warranty road again, ever.
That's not what I want to hear, I was planning on purchasing an extended through USAA.

Just be aware of their built-in escape clause. If you have no repair history other than regular maintenance, you'll probably be just fine.

Well that makes me feel a little better. I'm still working on getting the service history of the M5 I'm trying to buy, if it's clean I hopefully won't have anything to worry about.

How is the Gold BMW plan?

I have 40k on my 2010 M5. How much for the 3yrs/100k gold plan folks?

I spent $4,500 on my 3yr/36k warranty from USAA yesterday when I bought the M5.

But I plan on calling them tonight and going through the contract again. I understand not covering the SMG clutch, but the pump and everything else in my mind needs to be covered.

There are better warranties out there. I paid about $4500 for 36/3yr through BMW dealership. It is by EasyCare (package is Total-Care, covers nearly everything). Costco also has a comparable warranty with the added benefit of getting "soon to fail" parts replaced ahead of time. The fact that BMW sold me the warranty (and I did my due diligence and read all about EasyCare beforehand), I couldn't have gotten a better deal. Despite having the warranty though, I have never and don't plan to use it for trivial stuff like electronics issues and so on... I have and will continue to fix things up as they come. The warranty is solely reserved for big jobs that I can't possibly manage myself. Also, don't forget that your warranty is worth the cost of the purchase price of the car. That means pretty much a single engine replacement will leave you out for more repairs. This holds true for EasyCare. I don't know about others, but it's in the fine print and almost never talked about by the sales rep.

Did you get a chance to call them? I haven't had time yet but I was going to try to do it today.

Quick question.

If I was to buy a used E60 M5 08 and up some place other then a BMW dealership, can I still call the dealership and get a warranty on the car?
