Where do you take your bmw’s for servicing after the 4 year warranty is done in the bay area? Did you buy extended warranty from bmw? If you take it to the local person, bmw guys say they can’t reset the settings of the car. Is that true?

      Ironically leasing deals on luxury cars are actually better than some non-luxury brands at the end of the year.

      That’s partially due to the lower demand than typical consumer cars along side how quickly they depreciate.

    I was told the 60 month extended warranty costs about 3K. Still wondering to buy it.

      Is this for the new car or after your current warranty has expired?

    Following I have an i3. It’s a lease so I just go to the dealer it’s all covered.

    I personally do not think it is a good deal to buy the warranty. A lot of things are not covered. The things they do cover are pretty reliable now. If you plan to keep the bimmer longer, you can actually do some of the maintenance yourself like changing air filter, cabin filters, wiper blades, steering oil, and so on. There are things definitely that you cannot do. Go to BMW Club of America https://www.bmwcca.org/ They have a list of independent shops. Most are pretty good. You can even buy parts online (FCP Euro, warranty on all parts including wiper blade) and have the shop installed for you. It is not as expensive to keep a bimmer. But, it is definitely not as cheap as Honda or Toyota.
    If you don't want to keep it long term, there is no point doing much except oil change. Good luck!
