I've recently been looking around to getting my first service as it's time. I remember some of you mentioning that you purchased the extended warranty and had first servicing included for free.
I was checking out the MINI Australia website and they have a Warranty Plus offer, giving you an extra year for $660! I asked a sales rep if this included free first servicing, they were unsure but believed that it didn't.
Does anyone know for sure if first service is included or not?
: just picked up cabriolette six weeks ago and got like everyone else only two year unlimited warranty. As this is second new mini cooper S and warranty on first mini is getting close to the two year expiry i enquired re additional warranty. You are able to buy one additional year for a cost of $650.
But lo and behold the service manager asked me did i purchase the additional warranty that BMW now offers well that was the first i had heard of it, so of course i said no i was never told about it. Apparently now for a sum of $1300 you can purchase an additional three years which then makes it five year unlimited kms and this includes all yours services for five years. Not bad basically get one year free compared to $650 a year for the older new minis and yes its called the TRIPLE THREE. The manager then told me that he could not sell it to me as it was only on point of sale. Well i was not happy and kicked up quite a fuss and the manager wrote to mini australia to request this.
And guess what i got it so go out there and fight for what is yours as they wont tell u as it is not in favour but five years with no worries well let me tell u it was definately worth the fight and i am loving every minute of cruising in my new baby but only one problem couldnt part with electric blue cooper s aka; supermini, so now officially a two mini family.
