Buying warranty

Can you buy warranty on a car that is out of warratny from the dealer?
Example, 02/03- less than 100K, can you buy warranty through BMW?
Anyone can recommend aftermarket warranty companies?

Just doing some research.

You should be able to.

I can't remember the exact figures now, but when I asked for my 2002.2 325xi with 168,000 km, I was quoted something like $1,600/1 year.

Call up any dealership.

The used car warranty business is crap in Canada. It’s only available through dealers, and used car dealers mostly like to warranty their own vehicles, and the dealers that will sell you a warranty regardless aren’t the shops I want working on my car. In the US you can buy a warranty like buying insurance policies lots of competition. Oh Yeah M5 are bad.............ASS.

Surprisingly, it is only my 3rd choice.
Once you've owned a handbuilt one of ### e34 M5, the e39 doesn't seem nearly as awesome, although who knows.

When I was looking at warranty for my car about 3 yrs ago, I spoke to a service advisor at Downtown BMW and I was quoted $300 plus for a pre-warranty inspection and $3900 for 3 years after that and service by them.. I did not go for it

^ Nothing strange. That's why their cars are always priced more on the lot when you compare them to private sale. IMHO, the best is to purchase from the private that is already under the warranty. It is easier to get a much better deal. At least you know what you are getting yourself into.
