I just got some quotes on my 2010 M5 with 28K miles, thought I'd share. I understand all of these can somewhat be negotiated. "Maybe" for SMG clutch indicated I've found posts on the web were people said they've gotten it covered by a company. Most of the people giving me a quote don't understand what it is. They ask if it's like triptronic.

Refer to my post on BMW's warranty if you have questions (post #68):
https://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e60...ml#post2441811

I paid $4991 for an additional two years, 100K miles extended warranty at the platinum level.

Whatever company you chose, be sure you factor in your driving habits on whether or not having more years or extended mileage is important. For me, mileage was more important since I drive my car often.

Greg, hard to understand I think becaus some of those are stated mileage plans, some are stated date, and some are additive. Comparing a 6/100K BMW to a 5/60K Fidelity plan is difficult because the BMW plan ends 6 years from the time the car originally went into service, and 100K on the odometer even if starting at 75K. The Fidelity plan ends 5 years from the day you buy the plan or when you add an additional 60K miles to the odometer reading at the time of warranty purchase.

NO ONE, including BMW, covers the wear items in the clutch, either 6-speed or SMG. That means the pressure plate, friction material, flywheel, throwout bearing, etc are ALL not covered items. The only way to get those covered is under BMW's pre-paid maintenance plan.

What you need to verify is if the SMG pump is covered. That's the item where some warranties cover it as they just consider it a hydraulic pump, and some don't because they consider it part of the clutch system.

thank you Mdyaman and Bruce, good information. My factory warranty is up Oct of 2013, so I'm in the debate of pay less now and have overlap and shorter term, or wait.

Is there a lawyer in the house

Just want to get some free advise if possible. When buying a warranty If I get the salesperson to state the clutch and pressure plate are covered either with a copy of the online chat or e-mail and save it. Is that enough to prove my case should the clutch and or pressure plate fail and the warranty provider then tells me it is not covered. If it is not good enough to win the dispute with the warranty company would it be enough to sue the salesperson for the cost of the repairs in small claims court? Thanks for any opinions given.

Did you know the clutch was not covered and you are planning on purchasing the warranty or did you think the clutch was covered and now you need one? Based on how your post was written it sounds like you are warranty shopping and hoping to somehow find a way to get something covered that you know is not in the policy.

Seems to me that trying to take advantage of someone and basically entrape another human who is obviously not properly informed is sleazy and part of the problem with our legal happy culture. If you know that the warranty does not cover the part in questions then you should proceed with that in mind. No need to sue anyone for something you know you are not entitled to.

I try to operate with the highest integrity possible. Knowingly trying to get something that you are not entitled to is BS and might even be considered fraud.

I would think the only legal binding document is the signed warranty contract.

If anything, if a salesman pitched the warranty as covering the clutch (and you have proof), you can get them for misrepresenting a product.
