Hello to all you Beemer folks out there. I'm new to the site and new to ownership of a BMW vehicle. In the past, I've had three different BMW motorcycles, all of which I really enjoyed and thought they were the best thing on two wheels. I'm older now and feel a little safer trying to stay on 4 wheels. As of this week, the wife and I found and purchased a 2006 X3 3.0i with 49,464 miles on the clock. As such, the servive warranty and bumper to bumper warranty are about to expire. My question to the group, is it a good idea and worth the money to pick up the extended coverage? The car has not had brakes and I understand it's a $1650 expense at the dealership. Is there something special about BMW brakes that make it so expensive? Is it important to stick to trained techs at the dealership for a brake replacement job?
Thanks for any help and insight anyone can give me.
Thanks for the feedback on brakes and BMW technicians. It sounds like it won't be that hard to do or find a competent independent mechanic that can handle the job.
How about the extended warranty? Should a person spend the money to continue coverage up to the 100K miles or is it better to find a decent mechanic that can fix any problems that may come up? It sounds like if you take out the big expense of brakes at the dealership, you may be better off not buying an extended warranty.
