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...

Good luck.

>>  which warranty company was it that went out of buisness?
>>  I have a 2000 S4 - 67k miles, and I have had an aftermarket warranty from:
>>  http://www.warrantybynet.com/
>>  It took over when my factory warranty ended... lasts a total of 6 years or
>>  I have 100K miles. In 17k miles or so I have used about $1100.00 of the
>>  warranty which cost me $2000.00. My car is in the shop tomorrow for
>>  power steering problems - so maybe I will get to use it again!
>>  If I loose a little money, that is fine. If I save some money - great.
>>  But I have the warranty mainly as an insurance policy in case something
>>  really bad happens. Blown engine - tranny - etc...
>>  They have covered:
>>  Leaky washer pump
>>  blown DV - (got 2 Bosh sport 110's paid for)
>>  Sun roof motor blew out
>>  rear wheel bearing
>>  Throttle Body boot
>>  the TBB was a funny one. They wouldnt cover it. so I called and
>>  They still said no. They said that they had determined that the TBB was a
>>  hose, and they dont cover hoses. I asked who my Lawyer should contact, as
>>  I felt that was breach of contract. He then asked me where they should
>>  me a check.. hehhee
>>  cheers,
