Again, I've saved tens of thousands of dollars by NEVER paying for that crap (cars, motorcycles, electronics, appliances, etc), so even with a catastrophic failure, I'd be WELL AHEAD of the numbers game... which at my 49, still stands at ZERO (knock on wood). It's all about the odds . Only instance it wouldn't make sense to 'gamble' is if you're broke... but if that was the case, you shouldn't be driving an M3 to begin with . Good luck.
I've never been in a car accident. I've lost all the money I've spent on car insurance.
