Ext. Warranty? -INTERSTATE STAR -
Anyone have any experience with this company - INTERSTATE STAR (out of Uniondale, NY) ? I am looking at buying a 2004 1150 GS milage 72,000 with about 2 years left on the warranty. I can transfer it to me for $50.
A friend says extended 3rd party warranty companies are notorious for it not being easy to get them to pay.

i have a warranty from them and the two times i had to deal with them they were dicks. the first time was for a busted throttle (not cable) and the bmw shop had to fight for them to pay a couple hundred bucks.
the second time was for broken cam chain guides. expensive job and they tried everything to not pay. first they wanted service records, then said that i voided the warranty by doing my own oil changes. i think it was around the time i mentioned calling the nys attorney general that they took another look at the bill.
in the end they paid but i won't be buying another extended warranty. especially from them.
however, i paid around $1,100 for the warranty and it more than paid for itself.
bmw makes motorcycles now?

Used it on my RS at 33,000 miles for timing chain, final drive and trany leaks....Paid without issue.
Your SM at the dealer should handle the repairs with them for you. If your not getting what the contract states, then your SM is sellling you short!
Most BMW dealers sell this EW.
