Declined All After Purchase Options on new 2021 330i

I'm a first-time buyer of a new BMW 330i and turned down all of the optional protection plans due to the excessive costs. The following, among others, were offered...Vehicle Service Contract - $5,400, Tire & Wheel Protection - $2,655, Chip Bra Protection - $1,100, Dent Protection - $759, Key Replacement - $658, Maintenance Agreement - $5,878. Just curious to know if others purchased any of these benefits or have regrets for not purchasing any of them.

The only one of these worthwhile is tire/wheel protection.

1) $2655 is outrageous for this coverage. I've always been able to get this for around $600-700.

2) Depending on your tire/wheel selections, this can be very worthwhile at that price.

It's a must for 20" rims + runflats. Just read the forums about this combo. I had 20" rims and runflats on a 640i I leased a few years ago. I had a total of 7 tires and 1 rim replaced under warranty. I actually hit the $5000 payout limit (read the contract, its in the details). It paid off many times. For 19" rims on a 3-series w/ runflats, it's also advisable. I had to replace 4 tires on a 2015 335i, and wish I had purchased insurance. 18" rims are probably ok, and 17" rims won't need coverage at all.

Honestly, my biggest issue with the BMW sedans are tires and rims, especially the god-awful run flats. Combine these with low-profile rims and anywhere with potholes, and you're going to lose tires. Happens fairly often, I'm afraid. Good luck.

I just told the SA "no" up front and also told him that if I was hassled on it, I am walking out the door. So...no hassle and certainly none of these.

Agreed, declined all the "dealer options"...I did appreciate that they had't thrown a bunch of crap on the car already...tint/lojack/etc...like other car dealerships put on and won't remove, the only place BMW fails is there unwillingness to give up on the dumb run flat setup philosophy...it does make it easier for them to try to sell you a "tire replacement" package especially for lease end returns...but in general if a dealership "offers" you anything run away or just say no, my experience with BMW dealerships is they are low pressure typically as they know they have a good product...went with a friend to a Dodge dealership and it was hysterical all the BS they were slinging to get my friend to pay for all the extra dealer stuff...lol
