In Reply to: Warranty Issue HELP! posted by HMC on September 16, 2001 at 23:20:23:

I am going to buy a 97 M3. Obviously the BMW warranty is expired. Do I really need to buy a new warranty? Is it necessary?

Any suggestions/comments would help!

I'm not the type that believes in warrantees. First off, What's there to break? The only thing I can think of is the water pump going out on you. Changing a water pump is cheaper than paying $2500 on a warranty. Moreover if something major breaks it's probably going to be due to mistreatment and that will probably void the warranty. Moreover, if something little breaks, remember there is always a deductible included with these warrantees. Usually $50-75.00 bucks. Another thought is. If you really want to rely on your warranty you must keep your car stock. I went almost nuts trying to keep my car stock because I bought my car used and it came with a 100K warranty. I only lasted 6 months before I tore the car apart! Now the car is completely modded and I'm loving every sec of it. I probably flushed the warranty down the tubes but heck I haven't had any problems with it so far anyway. just my thoughts....
