Buying Ultimate Care + for M340 brake pad coverage?

Hi All,

According to my knowledge, the standard 3 year maintenance does not include brake pad wear replacement. For those that have an M340, is it wise to purchase the package since they cover brake pad replacement?

I can't remember but I think within the first four years of my 228 they changed the brake pads more than once. Not sure whether this was my driving or they just didn't know what to do when I brought my car in for service. Thanks.

There was another post in here regarding the different warranties/protections. Personally, I purchased the vehicle on a 48 month loan and had all of the ultimate care and what not added. It is a bit confusing, but you do need to purchase additional coverage, which includes brakes and wipers. I’ll have to check my paperwork when I have a chance to see what it is exactly called. I know I’ll get shit on for “wasting money” on these plans, but I’d rather beat the tits off the car and not worry about getting bent over if something needs replacement.

I purchased ultimate care due to the fact that put on about 15k miles per year. I figure I will need brake pads towards the end of this year. My m340 bought August 2019

Curious to know what was the cost of the Ultimate Care+ for you guys. My dealer quoted me $1,200 for the M340i, but for some reason that sounds more expensive than what it is supposed to be.

Like the car, the prices for these packages can be negotiable. I turned all of them down when the car came in and the FI guy made a second run at me the next day with a discount.

Frankly, I would worry more about repair costs of the cockpit electronics and turbos than I would brakes, but I opted out of the warranty and maintenance packages. Replacing brakes and wear and tear parts is just part of the normal expense of owning a car. I do some of it myself and what I don’t I accept paying a pro to do when it needs done. I do wonder what it’s going to cost to replace the arm that delivers me my shoulder belt when I close the door of my G22. LOL
