View Full Version : 740iL Warranty and Service

07-28-2007, 09:54 PM
Hello all. This is my first post. I have a 740iL sport that I purchased two years ago, with an extended warranty, through the dealer. The warranty expires next week. I am trying to decide whether to purchase another warranty for $3000+ as well as find a good independent shop.

Does anyone have experience with "Warranty Direct" or others?

Any shop recommendations specifically for E38 and preferably in the Silver Spring area? There is a shop very near me, named Rossi. I don't have any information about them. You may reply by PM. Thank you.

Please keep me informed if you find out anything. I've seen WarrrantyDirect mentioned as having come through for the owner(s) on the PCA website, but they won't cover my new-to-me 996.

I signed up with Continental Warranty Friday, but just found their many complaints on the 'Rip-Off' site (http://www.ripoffreport.com/default.asp) that I'm inclined to cancel.

Had one co. go belly up on me before, too! My one advice is to charge any monthly premiums to Amex. They came through for me last time.

Not sure why the 'thumbs-down is there ...

For independent shops in maryland, I'd go with bmwexcluservice or dan martin's auto. As far as the warranty, I'm not sure.
