    BMW extended warranty is the best but also most pricey

    After paying £600 or 700 plus a year for two years, I stopped and put the money in a savings account instead. It has grown to quite a size now.

    Depending on your circumstances you may want to consider it as an option.

    I think if you change the bearings and replace the actuators these cars are pretty solid so wouldn't worry about a warranty but that's just my opinion!

    Yeah I used a savings account 'Chip in' and then used the saved money to replace the bearings. Nothing else on mine needs doing as the throttle actuators have been done by rebuild. Maybe the ABS pump but I have plenty already there to cover that.

    Thats what the community is here for!!!

    It will cost c2k for both of those. Depending on mileage of your car most should do bearings 1st.(c1.4k) as a spun bearing is very costly to repair whereas most repair the actuator when it actually goes...the car goes into limp mode so just needs a new one to function properly again

    Saving is a good idea atleast for the rod bearings as £1400 is a big hit at once

    I wouldn’t touch the warranty companies, I’ve just had two weeks of hell with a company called Auto protect, basically my vanos failed or was near enough failed as it was making a loud whining noise, so I took it to the garage and they started the process, I was told it would be sorted out within a couple of hours by Auto protect, it has taken two weeks of them messing me around, then finally yesterday they say the part is not covered. Just save some money every month mate, and save yourself the head ache.

    I was thinking the same until mine just went in for a leaking diff this week, whilst in I also asked them to check the DCT and that was also leaking oil, there are lots of other issues on these cars other than Bearings and Actuator's luckily mine still has the BMW Warranty. It's due for renewal in November and this was a timely reminder that it is worth continuing with. I would do the saving thing above rather than buy another non BMW warranty though.

    I’m sure the BMW warranty is better than the non BMW warranty
