Extended Warranty...is it worth it???

Hello. Im going to get my 11X3 28i this end of July. How much is the extended warranty here in Canada? And is it worth it? Im planning to keep this baby for the next 10 years or so with upwards of 400km roughly 200,000 miles. To get or not to get that is the question. thanks

If you're keeping it long term it makes the most sense to purchase the extended warranty. Without question.

I think if you are keeping it for long...it might be worth it as European cars tend to have higher maintenance costs once they get older...specially in the poor roads of Canada!

Just bringing this thread up to see if anyone else can chime in...

I'll be picking up my X3 35i in a couple of weeks. I plan on keeping it for 5 - 7 years. Do you think the Extended Maintenance or Warranty are worth it? Or both?

Prices you think are fair for these? Any input would be helpful.

Thanks.

You don't have to purchase the extended right away when you buy the car. You can wait until just before the regular warranty expires, and buy the extended then, it will cost a bit more then. That gives you the flexibility to see if you really are keeping the vehicle for 5 to 7 years. You could change your mind on that.
