While waiting for our Week 43 323i, we've been mulling over the possibility of getting an extended warranty. A few calls and some reading turned up the following.
1. BMWNA does not offer a factory extended warranty (according to our dealer). Said they used to, but not now.
2. Some people have stated that you can get the (newly upgraded) service warranty extended from 3/36 to 4/50 for about $400. Anyone have a BMWNA reference to this (so I can ask about it)?
3. Dealer stated that some third party insurance companies offer extended warranty packages. Anyone know about these, and if so, can you recommend for/against any specific companies?
I know that for many things extended warranties are profit centers, but I'd like to weigh out the options. One necessity is that it be servicable at any BMW dealership in the event we move.
