Greetings; I am a new BMW CCA member (as of Oct. 6), and first time BMW owner at age 67. I reside in the greater Milwaukee area and purchased a non-CPO 2011 750Li a week ago from a Chicago dealership. The car had 36,900 actual miles on it at the time of purchase. The dealer's option for an extended warranty, which also would include tires/wheels was over $7,000. I declined to purchase that, figuring that is a huge money maker for sellers, and could have been based on Chicago rates ? What I am wondering from those of you out there in BMW-land is whether I'd be eligible for a BMW extended warranty of some kind or if there are any legitimate/reliable third-party vendors. I have seen a few ads from vendors out there, like Carchex, Auto Protection, and the like. Would it be better for me to see one of the 2 local BMW dealers to ask what extended warranty protection their service departments will take ? Or, is my best option just bankrolling this and avoiding an extended warranty altogether ? Thanks for any info you all might have. - Stu T. - Delafield, Wisc.
