I know there was a poll a while back but I searched for it and couldn't find it.

So the question is what companies offer the best used car warranties? I just bought a 330ci with 107k and I'm wondering if a extended warranty is worth while and what should I expect to pay?

Thanks

i have dealt with lubrico and cross country as a service provider ( when they break we fix it) lubrico has always been the best seems to be less hoops to jump through and tend to have more supporting shops. i have heard of people paying 1000 bucks for a full coverage deal.

what about 1997 540-6 with 210,000km is there any warrany available for her?

something for 50,000km maybe powertrain?

i heard a couple of bad things about lubrico . . . apparently they will typically insist that you get used parts to keep the cost down and will often refuse to cover OEM replacement parts because they claim that dealerships overcharge for them. Apparently they also won't let just any shop do they work either.

this is only from what I've heard though, never dealt with them personally

@europride, I think there are extended warranties that cover up to 250k, not sure though

going to be challenging
you are over 200k
you have an 9year+ car

the above 2 are restrictions on a lot of company

I guess I better buy a Bentley repair booking for a e39 and begin studying!!!


Zionsville radiator/cooling system is the best I hear for 1,139(made out of alloy)
Valve cover gaskets
valley pan gaskets
water pump.


Those are three or four major concerns I have with a e39 1997 540i-6.
I would like to do those jobs myself so I could save a couple g's.
