New to Bimmer - help plz
Just joined the site after reading alot of useful posts. I've just purchased a certified 2006 325i for my wife last night but I have never owned a bimmer so I have few questions. I've tried searching the forum but I didn't get the info I needed. Please don't flame the newbie...
The question is mainly on the maintenance and warranty. So far I've read that BMW doesn't offer any extended warranty but since I have warranty until 100k, I don't really care much. However, the extended maintenance is hard to decide on. The car already has 48k miles so it will be over soon so it sounds like a good idea but without knowing what services are due from now till 100k, I don't know if it's worth it. The car is in near new condition with new brakes, tires, rotor, etc. Even the door seal seemed new.
The initial cost for the extended maintenance was $2000 so I turned it down. I've found old posting that the dealer cost is $1090 so I'm going to try to pay $1300-1500 cash but I wanted to check here first. Is this worth it on a certified vehicle with 100k warranty and all the wearing parts already replaced? What types of maintenance is due from 48k till 100k assuming that all the major ones are already done through certifying the vehicle? The dealer hasn't given me the manual yet...
Thank you in advance for your inputs. I think I found a new reading material at night.
