Goodbye warranty & maintenance plan!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you... My coupe is 4 years old today (39k miles). Who else has reached that milestone?

Congrats Greg.
You have an order for the new one set up?

No, getting a new ML for my wife first. I've gone a full model cycle in the past and will decide when the new one comes out. Probably won't be getting one of the first.

Mine won't be four years old until later this year. My warranty has been gone for a while however, due me having more than 50k miles on the car.

Are any of you getting the extended warranty? I'm seriously thinking about it but have not tried to price one out yet.

nope no warranty or maintenance for me. been discussed a ton on here and doesnt make sense for most part as i do a lot of my own work. im also tuned so BMW would probably baulk if i blew an engine anyway.

The only part of the car that I worry about is the DCT. That thing is crazy expensive to replace and I swear mine is feeling different from when it was new. I think it has to do with my AA pulley but I can't be sure....

Wow! Thats not bad at all. How many miles did you have on the car? I just passed 20k and I'm going to ask for what you got when I go in for my last service.
