I wasn't able to get bumper to bumper, but I was able to get this one https://freedomwarranty.com/wp-conte...VE-1117-D1.pdf
Cost was around 4k
Thanks for the reply. Good luck with the car.

Do you plan to do bearings proactively?

I assume you are getting the "Standard Plus Coverage" listed in the link above.

Did you see this limit for the Standard Plus? "There are per-component limits on what it will pay described in the contract. The most this plan will pay out is $5,000 over the life of the contract for a gasoline vehicle or $7,000 for a diesel vehicle."

They definitely have a lot of fine print but my contract clearly states $20k total coverage. On the other persons mention of only up to 100k mileage, the plan allows for you to sign up with up to 150k mileage so that doesn't really make sense, it goes beyond 100k when I hit the many milds.

What do they say about service history?

I am not trying to pi$$ on your parade, I wish you the best.

But, in all reality, what kind of extended warranty can u expect on a 10+ year old car that costs a bunch to maintain....

One that hopefully lets me sleep better at night lol. Something is better than nothing they say, so I took what I could get.

To OP, yes, I do plan to do those proactively at some point. Hopefully sooner rather than later =)

The best warranty is to pro-actively have bearing replacement done by someone that knows the s85 inside out.

They will also advise on any additional items due while in there; be aware depending on recommended part replacement it may exceed $ 4,000 but end result is much less inconvenient and mitigates the risk of never ending return repair trips due to potentially unaddressed ancillary damage as a result of waiting till an actual bearing failure

Warranty companies are in it to make a profit, they are good at it. The problem with extended warranties is that they typically do not cover wear items or neglect abuse or scheduled maintenance. Just about everything is a wear item, or if it's a defect then they can go after BMW. Therefore, hardly anything is actually covered.
