I just read the Allianz doc and I can't see any exceptions saying the roof on a convertible is not covered? i wonder if David from Northshore was trying to get me to buy the BMW one?

Anyone seen anything on this?

Thanks

David from Northshore got back to me and it is on the used car warranty that the roof is not covered and that only applies if you purchase the warranty when the vehicle is out of new car warranty.

FYI for all.

Just out of curiousity, I was once told that bmw can extend the warranty even after the car is out of warranty by 3 months. Knowing the fact that it always been serviced by BMW dealer. Is this true? I was told this by the mechanic manager in BMW central coast? I'm just curious as I recently bought the car second hand and it's about 4 months out of warranty. I know this sounds stupid but hey "you never ask you never know"

I think his name was Luke. They were pretty helpful, and cut to the chase with the best price straight away.

I think you can buy the Allianz used car warranty. Perhaps BM have something similar?

Not sure. Best to ring a BMW dealer and get them to send you the PDS.

Spoke to Mike at Toowoomba. $31xx for 3yr/75000 with Allianz.

Locking it in tomorrow. Could try and see if Northshore will better it, but can't be bothered!

Be aware the extended warranty is with an insurer, not BMW. Ask what the difference is.

Let's just say an extended warranty is not the same as a BMW warranty.

I just did a close(ish) read of both policies and there is nothing of note. The text is 90% the same and both are underwritten by Allianz. BMW gives you road side and 2 years for more money than Allianz.

I can email both policies to those that are interested.

And in the event of a warranty issue, how is the issue resolved?

All done $3118 for 3yrs/75K with Allianz!!! Mike at Toowoomba BMW is a pleasure to deal with and straight to the point. I'm not the best negotiater and such a reasonable price to begin with made my life easy. Very happy and lots of peace of mind.

I'd recommend ringing Mike before wasting your time with anyone else.

Cheers

Hello all.

Just wanting to try and rekindle this thread.

My 135 has 20k km's on the clock and is running out of manufacturers warranty on the 17th of this month. I have Premium Selection warranty starting for 12mths from then.

I want to keep the car for a while and got a quick quote from BMW Sydney the other day for a 3yr extension to the manufacturers warranty including roadside and accident care. The initial price was a tad over $7k and I just sat there and looked at him, he knocked 25% off and brought it down to $5775!

What are others recent experiences (price/purchase location etc etc). I'd prefer the peace mind knowing that if something dies it'll be fixed but this price is just crazy. In the last 12mths I've had the HPFP replaced as well as the steering sensors.


Cheers.

I would put that 5k a side for repairs. I cant speak for all but my 135 is not problomatic and neither was my 07 335i, the only issues I had with both were HPFP failures, and regular maintenance, if you want to give them 5k for peace of mind by all means do, good luck bro
