I got the extended warranty for the 2016 Audi Q3. It cost $2,516 CAD for the platinum plan. This summer, one of the window switches auto mode didn't work (not a big deal, I know). They had to replace the module, $400 for the part only not including the labor. I am glad that I took the plan.

I believe Audi has a better deal than BMW. I just checked the paper, the plan is 9 years/180,000km.
yes, bmw doesn't have the best of plans out there, but i figured that six years is about the longest that i'd keep the car and after calculating my mileage, 75k miles per year was the best fit.

and yes, peace of mind definitely got the better of me haha

75k (75,000 miles) a year? That is 450k (450,000) miles in 6 years.

no, i'm prettttyyyy sure that you could have caught the error in that the warranty is 72m/75k miles total, so two years and 25k miles past the bumper-to-bumper factory warranty. so in stating that 75k miles per year i meant to state that 75k miles within the terms of warranty is sufficient.

the original asking price of the dealer was 3700 which was the lowest in all of the southern california dealerships to respond and i got them to lower it to 3200, which i don't think is a bad deal at all for two more years and 25k additional miles of coverage.

i had to negotiate like my life depended on it and i yelled at the finance manager, all, DO YOU WANT MY BUSINESS OR NOT???!?!?!?!? yeah, he did. haha.
Glad you made up your mind, there is no wrong answer to the question should I buy it or not. Being able to sleep is the most important factor. Even if you end up not keeping the car the end of the warranty it doesn't matter, you get to enjoy the car and frankly that is all that matters (oh and stay safe but you get it)

I still grin every time I get in a drive it. So enjoy the ride, well done

I appreciate how you explained everything. It does indeed make a lot of sense. No wife, no kids - then yeah, worth it!

exactly. if things were different i might be driving a honda accord, but i have no spouse and more importantly no kids, so i have a great deal more disposable income.
