I think the price has come up a bit from the time that I got mine,
which was almost 2 years ago. I am pretty sure I paid just about
$2000.00. And I have no deductible. At the time, I paid more so as
to not have a deductible.
I called them with questions about who was the underwriter, and who
secure a company they were... And they offered me a little money off.
I told them I wasnt ready to make a decision yet, as I was still
researching other companies. About a week latter, I was ready and I
had already decided on them... They called me and offered another
deal, slightly better. I really was just trying to do my homework,
but they kept trying to tempt me a little more.. so they will come
down a bit. My girlfriend has a 330Xi, and she got a warranty from
them too.. they came down a little for her as well.
I think they use a different underwriter now. Mine is through
Travellers Insurance. I felt OK with that...
