My F31 330d will be 3 on the 1st March at which time the warranty will expire. It has covered 20000 miles and as I am now semi retired is used sparingly. It has been cherished from new, washed and detailed far more than it needs to be and never used for short journeys. I will make progress when appropriate but always ensure it is thourghly warmed through first and cools properly afterwards. The only warranty issue thus far has been the not uncommon horn failure. It ticks all the boxes for me and I can only see it being replaced by the next generation 3 but only after 12 months of production to iron out any bugs. Whilst I have yet to receive a quote to extend the warranty an educated guess leads me to beleive BMW will want somewhere in the region of £600 per annum. My question is should I pay that for the peace of mind that will bring or would it be better to simply put that money away every year as a contingencey fund to pay for repairs as and when required? I all ready have full AA cover and can extend that when required for the occasional trip into Europe. I am tempted to go with the later option as when I had a proper job all my company BM's would happily run to 140000 miles without issue. If I was lucky I would then have a pot of money to add a few nice extras, pano' roof etc. What would you do? Kindest Regards Carl.
