Comprehensive Warranty - 100k miles
« on: June 10, 2018, 09:37:58 PM »

Had the car 4 years as an AUC, and have taken the full BMW insured warranty every year sine AUC cover stopped. It's been a good investment - sunroof, small turbo, sat nav, water pump, suspension airbag all replaced.

Renewal due end of this week. Car has 93k miles - so still eligible for comprehensive cover, but will clock 100k this year (in about 8 months, I reckon).

Question: If bought now, does it provide comprehensive cover for 12 months, or until 100k is reached and then revert to driveline cover only?

If the latter then its an expensive option for only part-year comprehensive cover.

Wording of policy:

Comprehensive cover provides our highest level of Insured Warranty protection and covers the majority of mechanical and electrical components in your vehicle.
Failure of covered components for wear and tear is also included up to 100,000 miles from registration.
Comprehensive Insured Warranty is not available for vehicles with over 100,000 mileage (at the time of purchasing the warranty)

Any thoughts / experiences welcome.

UPDATE: Spoken to Allianz this morning. Basically whole car is covered for whole year, but at 100k 'wear and tear' items no longer covered. They couldn't specify what 'wear and tear' meant on something like the transfer box - if it went at 102k, is that beyond the expected lifespan of the unit and therefore not covered? It's down to the dealer diagnosis apparently.

UPDATE 2: Car is now sold, as we decided full warranty cover was essential. Now picked up a 2011 SE AUC with just about every toy on it. Nicer ride than M-Sport, and steering is much lighter (not sure if that's a good thing or not yet...)

Now: E70 SE 40d 2011
Previous: E70 M-Sport 35d 2009
