100,000 miles Blackstone Report

No serious problems, I need to replace my leaky wiper washer pump, needs a good polish. I have a list of parts/things I will do as I go, on top of maintenance.

At 100,000 miles, front rotors, brake pad sensors, oil change w/Blackstone, diff oil, .....



10k more, oil report coming up soon.

No major issues other than normal maintainence. I do highway miles 90% of the time.

I bought the car at 49k miles.

I just bought an 08 e92 with 25k miles and have been shopping around for extended warranties. USAA uses assurant to underwrite their warranties and carchex offered me an assurant warranty for about 500 less. These are the two options they pitched to me:


PLAN 1
SERVICE PLAN SUMMARY
View Sample Contract
Product Name: 2013 U Titanium
Coverage Term: 36 months / 30,000 miles
Deductible: $100.00
Waiting Period: 30 days & 1000 miles
Expiration Date: 3/5/2017
or Expiration Odometer: 56,000 miles

PRICING SUMMARY
Retail Price: $2,964.00
Sales Tax: $254.90
YOUR SERVICE PLAN PRICE $3,218.90
Monthly Payments As Low As: $178.83

and


PLAN 2
SERVICE PLAN SUMMARY
View Sample Contract
Product Name: 2013 U Titanium
Coverage Term: 60 months / 60,000 miles
Deductible: $100.00
Waiting Period: 30 days & 1000 miles
Expiration Date: 3/5/2019
or Expiration Odometer: 86,000 miles

PRICING SUMMARY
Retail Price: $4,241.00
Sales Tax: $364.73
YOUR SERVICE PLAN PRICE $4,605.73


They cover everything except for wear items.

The car is in great shape with full record of services done for the entire life of the car at bmw seattle. The question is how many of you guys have spent more than 4600 on repairs alone between 25k and 85k miles on your M's? I'm trying to decide if its worth it. Figured this would be THE best place to ask

You created another thread with this exact same comment, why add it to this one too? You already received plenty of feedback in the other post as well, so doesn't seem to make sense highjacking a thread about high mileage cars to ask a question about what warranty you should buy.

Because I plan on my 08 being a High mileage car and am contemplating betting that it will cost more than 4600 dollars in repairs. So, in short, because the owners on this thread are a perfect sample of people to replicate my situation. The phrase hindsight is 20/20 comes to mind. I was wondering how long it would take for someone to be a forum cop. My post isn't wasting anymore of cyberspace than yours is.

you think too much.. Just buy the car and enjoy it. If you're this worried about the cost incurred maybe its not the right time for you to buy one.

No one wants to own a car and worry every time their in it. Re: your costs> I think my m uses 4,600 in gas a month lol!

This recently happened to a friend of mine with an '08 that has about 60k mls: it was due to a faulty idle sensor.

bought the car at 30,000 miles last july, 2013. Im currently at 42,000 miles, mostly highway miles commuting to work.

had to change a fuel pump sensor @ 33,000 miles
got a new battery due to an error and also got a software update on the car @ 34,000 miles

sensors cost me 500 and the battery/software update cost me 840. those are the only two issues ive had with the car since purchase.

Exact same thing happened to me - twice. On the first occasion, I shut the car off, and the message went away for about a week. Second time I brought it in to the dealer and the right throttle actuator was replaced (under extended warranty). You should go get it checked out - as this is not too uncommon...
