Default extended warranty cost?

looking for a little input on current warranty pricing.

Looking at picking up an 08 M3 coupe non-smg.
For peace of mind, I'd like to also buy a warranty at / around the time of purchase.

Depends... Typically $4-5k. Personally, I skipped it - it's a bet that you will have more costs in covered repairs in the warranty period than the warranty itself costs. Excluding regular maintenance, I didn't have more than $3k of repairs on my E46 M3 in the 3 years I had it (mostly out of warranty, but no repairs were made under warranty anyway). The E92 is supposedly more reliable too, so I didn't feel that the extended warranty was the better bet.

They will likely negotiate as well, so you might be able to talk them down by as much as 40% (it's mostly margin for them) if you choose to purchase the warranty.

Just got off the phone with Costco. Called them because they wrote the warranty on my e63 AMG. Like many others, they won't issue any new warranties on AMG cars.

Here is what they quoted me.

08 e92 with 45k
$500 deductible
2 years: $3,267
3 years: $4,162

What are the details for this quote?

Thanks.

Call them for more details.

Woman that gave me the quote, said it was the same warranty as the one on my AMG.
Bumper to bumper, wear and tear items are the only exclusion.

To be clear, I don't work for Costco / no way affiliated with them.

Default Re: extended warranty cost?

I bought an extended warranty through USAA after my regular warranty expired, $2k for 1 year or 12k miles whichever comes first, bumper to bumper, no deductible and so far I got more than my money's worth, just got my diff replaced and the A/C compressor under this extended warranty for a combined total over $6k...

I paid $3,327 for an 84 month (essentially extended my 4 year OEM warranty by 3 years to Feb 2016) / 75,000 miles Platinum (no maintenance) Warranty from United Autocare of Chicago IL (www.mrclaims.net) in Feb 2012 on a 2009 E92 with 22K on it. It has a $50 deductible per visit charge.
