    New to the forum - Extended Warranty Question

    Want to say hello to everyone. In a few months i'm going to be purchasing a e92 335i and i'm wondering about the extended warranty. Is it a warranty by bmw or is it a 3rd party type warranty?

    When I was purchasing my car and had the extended warranty option it was provided by the dealer for an extra cost.

    its not a bmw warranty, its a 3rd party that is accepted by that dealership. I purchased a 3rd party warranty and had no hassles when i took it into BMW to get worked on. Ask the dealer who the warranty is through. you might get a generic its bmw answer, but ask to see the actual contract and paperwork, im willing to bet its a different company

    BTW, i paid $2600 for a full b-b warranty, with 0 deductable and wear & tear, and electronics covered, original asking price for that coverage was $4800. you need to negotiate it. company was great until i had issues and they found out i was modded, but before that it was better than BMW's itself.. and BMW still gave me loaners when i dropped it off..

    I didn't get the extended warranty as I intended to mod. If you want to keep the car stock and over a long period of time, it is a good investment.

    Somehow I don't think I could get BMW to cover a low compression stroker motor Click here to enlarge

    I don't plan to keep it stock but the mods that i plan on installing should be basic and easy to take off before service. I've never dealt with warranty since this will be my first car that i am buying with that option. I was asking because my cousin had extended warranty on his VW GTI and when his timing belt was making noises constantly, the third party warranty didn't accept his claim. He also had the b.b. warranty.

    They definitely should have fixed his situation but remember all they want is to keep their money. Same with BMW, same $#@!.

    It only made the noise during cold starts and went away after motor was warmed up. What was stupid is that they had their own techs that came to the VW dealership to check his car out. The tech took everything apart including the belt, then called him to tell him that there isn't a problem. He ask them if he can just buy a belt from the VW dealership and he can just put it on while reassembling everything instead of him picking up the car with the same noise and make another claim in the future. They wouldn't even do that.

    I think he definitely should have been more aggressive or tried to work something out with the tech. That just sounds ridiculous.

    I have one more question, I live in Illinois and been looking around here for a 335i but have noticed that there are some that are cheaper in other states. If i were to purchase one out of state, how would warranty work? Do i have to drive back to where i bought it from to get my car serviced? sorry for the dumb question, never bought a car out of state before.

    with 3rd party warranty, check with the company, most just require they need to be ASE certified. mine even prefered me to go to bmw, but once bmw figured out i was modded (not hard to do) i had to switch, thats where VAC came into play Click here to enlarge

    so all in all, a good company wont care as long as its a ASE cert shop
