Does anyone have experience with Allstate Insurance? My local BMW dealership no longer offers EasyCare, but they do offer Allstate.

The plan I'm looking at is called Premier Wrap and it's an exclusionary plan. The quotes I got for a 2008 M6 with 45k miles were $4600 for 3 yr/30k miles or $6200 for 4 yr/40k miles.

Any advice would be much appreciated, thank you!

Prices seem about right. I wish that I had a 4 year option when I got mine, I was stuck with 3/36 as the max.

Great, thanks. For $6200, I'm almost wondering if a warranty is even worth it at all. I know a lot of stuff can break on a 2008 M6 but I'm not sure how best to weigh paying $6200 definitely vs. possibly paying anywhere from $0-$x for repairs etc


Also - does any have coverage on thie warranty from Allstate? I'd love to hear about any experiences or prices or anything else with them if possible.

Thank you.

Mine is a 2008 with 50k miles when I bought it. I bought it 3 weeks ago from a reputable indy dealer with a clean repair history, and a successful PPI by my shop.

It's currently in the BMW dealership's service department for new idle actuator(s). It (they) failed after I owned the car for 3 weeks. It would easily be a $1000 out of pocket repair, if it weren't for the warranty.

I've never bought an extended warranty for anything in my life, ever, until I bought this car. Do as you wish... For me the peace of mind of knowing I would get a new engine if mine grenaded outweighed the angst I would have if I made it through 3 years of M5 ownership without a repair bill.

Right, I totally understand. With these cars, it seems fairly predictable that expensive repairs are typically necessary. There's no real way for me to try and predict what will end up happening and which option will cost how much. The warranty will definitely buy some peace of mind for sure, thanks for your feedback.

Who is your warranty through and how is your experience with them so far?

Mine was purchased through USAA, but is actually done by Assurant.

I've had the car (and warranty) for 3 weeks; this is my first claim. They wanted to send an inspector out to check things out, which they did today. No word yet on if they approved the repairs or not, but I expect they will. I'll report back when I hear for sure. I was expecting some pushback since the policy is only three weeks old, but so far it's not been bad. They did call me today to do a little phone interview and confirm that it was working properly when I bought the car, they asked where I bought it, that kind of stuff. Very low pressure.

When I took the car in for this problem I also told my SA that the driver's side thigh bolster motor broke. I think that the dealership failed to properly communicate the problem to the warranty company because the first time I heard back from my SA, she said that they hadn't really diagnosed the problem yet with the thigh bolster, but that when she mentioned it to the warranty company they said it would be denied because they don't cover "cosmetic things like upholstery". Later that day I got a call from the adjuster from Assurant and I mentioned it to him, and he said, "Oh, a BMW... is that the thigh pad that slides in and out? Yeah, we see a lot of those motors break. We totally cover that."

So unless they deny my claim, which I'm not expecting, I'll be happier with Assurant than I am with my BMW center.

Wow that sounds pretty great Wish I could get USAA but I don't have any military affiliation unfortunately.

I didn't know you can get auto warranty through Allstate. I have to talk to my agent about this. Currently, I have 4 yr/ 50k mile warranty (paid $2900) with my credit union. I haven't done any claims yet so I don't know how good they are.
