Extended Warranty Reccomendations?

I'm looking for some recommendations for extended warranty options for my 2009 M3.

BMW wants way too much.

I called USAA but was not in the military so that's out.

Easy Care was decent. 3900 with a 100 deductible for full coverage for 3 additional years.

Any other recommendations with personal experience??

Check with your local credit unions, they usually offer various aftermarket warranties. In a lot of cases, you can roll the cost into your loan as well.

Please do a search. There are so many threads on this topic, it should be a sticky. I have personal experience recently purchasing an EW and have written about it in several other threads.

The reason BMWNA EWs (BMW calls them Extended Vehicle Protection plans) cost more is that they are the only ones that guarantee genuine BMW parts installed at a BMW certified facility. I did not want anything less.

And any BMW dealer can quote a BMWNA EW/EVP. I got several quotes nationwide and they varied by about $2000! Steve Thomas BMW, a forum sponsor, was the best.

Good luck searching and with your decision.

BMW warranties, although nice to have, are often quite a bit more expensive than what you can get aftermarket. Personally, I got one through my credit union, covering virtually everything on the car and taking me out from 25K mikes to five years or a total of 100K miles. I only paid ~$2000 for this plan Also, I was able to factor it into the loan when I bought the car used this last year.

I went with EasyCare TotalCare as well, based on a co-workers recommendation. Haven't had to call on them yet, so can't exactly recommend based on experience. Just rolled over 50k in my car. I did 3 yrs / 75k / $500 deduct - you might up your deduction if you're just really looking to cover multi-thousand dollar repair bills.

Indiana Members Credit Union. Obviously, local to here. However, any good credit union should be able to get you there. It's underwritten (?) by CUNA--something like Credit Union National Association.

One caveat: I did go with the $250 deductible. I did the math and, at $800 more to get down to a $100 deductible (or another $800 to get to a $0 deductible), it just didn't make sense.
