BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad vehicles are now covered by five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty.
BMW has announced it now covers its vehicles with a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty on all vehicles and motorbikes sold in Australia by brands BMW, BMW Motorrad and MINI.
The new warranty is effective from November 1 and BMW says “with validity period backdated to October 1, 2022.”
Essentially the warranty replaces the three-year, unlimited-kilometre guarantee it had previously touted and is applied to any vehicle a customer bought from October 1 2022.
The warranty is in addition to the BMW and MINI BEYOND ownership packages offered complimentary upon purchase of a new BMW and MINI model, including emergency calls, full use of cafe facilities at dealerships across the country, and digital assistance services that can be accessed via the My BMW App or MINI App.
The new warranty comes as BMW begins to rollout new models, including the new generation BMW i7 we’ve already driven, and the upcoming XM. Wolfgang Buechel, CEO of BMW Group Australia, said: “The new warranty offering perfectly complements our extensive range of ownership benefits, making the purchase of a new BMW or MINI even more compelling while providing long term peace of mind for our customers during their ownership journey.”
“We selected this time to introduce our new warranty along with the market debut of the seventh generation BMW 7 Series – a vehicle renowned for treating its occupants to peerless levels of luxury, technology and refinement.
“We look forward to introducing our new warranty and collaborating with our valued dealer network around the country to continue providing a high level of service and experiences to our customers.”
In conjunction with the new warranty are the existing BMW Service Inclusive (BSI for cars and motorcycles) and MINI Service Inclusive (MSI) maintenance plans.
The BSI and MSI plans use Condition Based Service (CBS) system, which uses sensors and algorithms to monitor and calculate when a vehicle needs to be serviced, rather than have the owner come in at a regular intervals based on predetermined kilometres or time passed.
