Hi All,

Requesting quick opinions on this one please -

In principle, do you feel BSI is needed for 320d ? I know some say BSI gives peace of mind, its a good service pack for cars driven lots.. Some say BSI is not required instead opt for the extnd warranty only, BSI is expensive than what one ends up paying for each service..
Folks, bit confused around BSI.. Is it worth it? Let all opinions flow in..

Thanks everyone.. Awaiting good insights

If your usage is high, Surely BSI is worth it, All depends on your usage & also a bit on how hard you drive, BUT to actually do the math if the BSI is worth it or not for you individually we would need more details, Have you bought the car already? If so whats your current running and usage?

Thank You very much Tanveer for your response. My query was for a friend of mine. He already booked 320d and his usage will be around 15 k per year. I understand that the BSI coverage for 3 years will be around 1.4 L inr. Now with BMW calling cars for service every 12000 kms, i think in 3 years my friend would have clocked 45000 kms and 4 services. my estimate for each service would be around inr 30,000 ( i am willing to stand corrected on this service cost for a single event) so for 4 services he will be spending around 1,20,000.. now this is around the same figure that BMW quotes for 3 years BSI..

What do you think?
Also BMW quotes significantly higher amounts for the 5 year plan.. On critical evaluation, would this be because BMW knows the product will incur significant service costs?

15,000 Kms per year is surely good amount of usage, Keep in mind apart from the usual filters/Oil changes, Brake pads front/Rear are expensive & can even wear off as soon as 25k to 30k depending on your friends driving style, Both front & rear pads itself will cost somewhere around 40,000-50,000 INR easily, Remember its not always that the car will exactly ask for a service at 12000 kms, It can be much earlier if the car is driven the way it is supposed to be, For instance my 530d asks for an oil change every 7000 - 7500 kms, When serviced it shows next oil change to 12,000 kms but driving in traffic in our conditions & the way i drive it comes down to 7000 kms or so.

Your friend should go for it, Another friend of mine who has a 520d has replaced his brake pads twice & had the discs changed once already under 35k kms! His driving style is aggressive and he also makes sure he enjoys the car every bit & he doesn't have to worry about service cost! BSI gives you the freedom to drive the way you want because you know anything that wear's off earlier than expected, You won't have to pay for it.

Agreeing with Tanveer and continuing, having owned a 320d I can tell you that these are some of the spare prices:
- Front/Brake Pads - about 25k a pair
- Rotors - about 30k a pair
- Service - 30k a sitting

If the usage is higher than 10-15k a year, just blindly take the BSI. The extended warranty has nothing to do with wear and tear parts and it is useless when it comes to high and aggressive usage.

Just to give you an idea of the spare prices, the front parking bulbs are 4k a pair (halogen), the horn (hi+lo) is 10k. Not sure if they're covered, but just thinking about the spare prices makes me think it is all worth it if you have an aggressive driving pattern.

Hi Guys,

I'm in dilemma whether to upgrade my 3 yrs / 60 K BSI to 5 yrs / 100 K. I originally took BSI Plus + RI and my mileage is on a higher side, having done almost 60 K in 2.5 yrs.

Specifically,

- Till now no suspension related issue has cropped up. I believe, such a requirement will definitely arise before 100 K mark. Does BSI Plus + RI cover suspension overhaul ?

- Brake pads lasted 37-38 K and 45 K for front and rear respectively, so they will be needed to be changed once between 60 - 100 K.

- Is battery covered in BSI Plus ?

- Service requirement varies between 9 - 11 K. So 4 regular services would be required until 100 K.

Given the above scenario does it make sense to extend the BSI, or should I just opt for extended warrant (RI).

Thanks,
Naman

It makes sense to extend the BSI as well. The service and replacement costs in the years to come will be high.

BSI does cover the suspension but not the battery. I have opted for the 5 year 80k cover.

Cheers,
