Definitely skip the Dent Protection and Appearance protection. It sounds like BMW Ultimate Care Plus is a better value mileage-wise, but there might be other dealers who can sell you that warranty for cheaper.
Thanks, yeah I’m thinking similarly but here’s the bullets they have:
BMW Ultimate Care Plus - 84 Months or 125k for $6k:
-Uses only genuine manufacturer parts
-Covers all factory required maint.
-Includes certain Wear & Tear Items
-Performed by factory-authorized technicians
Look into other third parties as well - Fidelity is well known and a better value in many cases.
Also, very easily cancellable for a pro rata refund. Depending on your state UC + may not be cancellable. This is relevant if you ever sell before the end of the term to someone other than an individual (and thus can’t transfer it).
Where does it say it covers issues that would otherwise be covered by a standard warranty ? For example, transmission failure ? Bmw ultimate care plus sounds more like pre-paid maintenance to me though I don’t know much about it.
