BMW Ultimate Care+

Guys - On the M2C, what are the service requirements for the first 3 years (assuming <10k miles per year)? Is it worth buying the BMW Ultimate Care+ for $700 for the M2C?

Thanks

The $700 will cover brakes, wiper blades and even the clutch for the duration of the 36 months.

Up to you if you see value in that or think it might be worth it.

Ok, I thought it covered maintenance like oil changes, etc?

Does BMW still include maintenance for 4yrs/50?

It's not Mercedes. Oil changes still included in base price, other stuff is not

Free Service Maintenance is 3 years/36K

https://www.bmwusa.com/explore/bmw-v...onditions.html

Warranty is 4 years/ 50K

If you drive less than 10K/year you will never recoup the $700 fees b/c you shouldn't need new brakes and surely not a clutch.

^ This. If you use a clutch in 3 years, then something is surely wrong. My 5 year old daily has been on the same clutch for who knows how long... Decent amount of clutch kicks and abuse, still holding strong. Pads MIGHT need replacing, but that's something you can DIY. Still not worth $700 IMO...

You might not believe you need it now but with less than 30,000 miles on my odometer, I had my front brakes changed twice and rear once, under the maintenance plan.

I do live in a city with a lot of stop and go traffic but I'm not really hard on the brakes, per se, so you might be surprise how fast brake wear creeps up on you.

Also, the brakes pads for your vehicle retail for $280, with BMW labor, figure $700 would at least pay for itself with one brake change, if they also swap the rotors ($391 per side), which is also included under this plan.

BTW, the $700 price is negotiable, so try to bring it down to 5 to $600, take it or leave it.

So, if I understand correctly, maintenance is included for 3yr/36k and warranty is 4yr/50k.

Thanks guys

Yes, the warranty is still 4/50k.

The chart on the right is what's covered and excluded for 36 months, 36k, if you don't opt of the $700 maintenance plan.
