I have a mini almost out of warranty. It's had 3 leaks from seals in last year and would've cost 3k if I'd been out of warranty.
I can buy another 24 m warranty for 3k.
I'd prefer to sell the car but wife would then want a Porsche so cheaper to keep it.
cars only worth 8k selling back to dealer.
Is it worth the risk to self insure? Or is the fact that it's a known leaker tip the scales toward the extended warranty not being a sucker bet in this particular case?
I'm willing to take some risk but I'll be irritated if car needs over 6k in work...
