I have owned 320D , 530D , X5 & X6 . I sold 3 series & X5 before they crossed 30,000 KM , all of these have been trouble free & almost as or more reliable than any other Cars My past cars include Pajero , Fortuner, Innova , CRV .
That's an impressive collection of cars you've got there. Thanks for sharing you feedback about BMW after sales and the durability of the Vehicle. I'm sure to hold the car for minimum 5 yrs as I don't change my cars before that period.

As luck would have it I got a mail from BMW stating that a new BSI for 3yrs/40,000 kms for Rs. 1,27,528/ has been introduced which is ideal for me. But was just considering of taking the full 5yr protection in the begining and be at peace. But whats your opinion on this new BSI. The cost is coming out to be Rs. 3.18/km.

Just check what are exclusions & how does this compare to Ultimate or is this same but with less mileage . I have never calculated costs of these packages per Km perse , in my opinion biggest ownership costs is depreciation , did you thought how much will you lose on 60 Lac in 3 Years / 40000 Km ? and if get in all these calculations we will never buy any thing .

I apologise if this question has been asked before - but I am finalising a deal for a 5er and the dealer has quoted the following:

RSA (Road side assistance package) for 4 years - Rs 11,235/-
BMW Secure Premium (1st year) - Rs 47,685/-
BMW RI (This is new terminology for BSI?) - Rs 1,37,038 for 3 yrs 40K Km and Rs 3,47,979 for 5 yrs 60K Km.

My question is are all these worth it? I plan to keep the car for 4 to 5 years, mostly self driven.

Yes , kind of - they now offer BSI as a standalone Maintenance Pack or Extended warranty

RI - Extended Warranty
Service Inclusive / Service Inclusive Plus - Maintenance Package

will suggest you to opt for 3 Year RI + Service inclusive plus which you can upgrade to 5 Years depending on your milage at later date , to best of my information Road Side is included for first 2 Years and is also covered under additional warranty if you buy BSI pack .

RI stands for Repair Inclusive.

Road-side Assistance (RSA) has to be bought separately, it's not available as a bundle with any of the BSI/BRI packages. It's provided as standard on all BMW cars for the 1nd and 2nd year.

However, it is available on certain BMW Secure packs, which is the additional insurance coverage available from BMW.

Yes but only limited to Warranty Repairs - under New or Extended Warranty

Service Plus & Basic - Two different Packages for regular schedule maintenance

RSA - Standard 2 years with new purchase , thereafter dependent on Insurance
