FML - My E63 AMG is without warranty...
Yup. I tried setting up an extended factory warranty but as we went through the motions it became apparent that because the first owner didn't extend the warranty for three years by the 5,000 mile mark - it prevents me from extending it past the factory warranty. So in about 5 weeks, I'll be on my own... That has me a bit depressed...
The car currently has less than 30,000 miles on it. I'm considering an aftermarket warranty by Carchex but my car has been modified so I don't know how that'll play out. I mean - if the car has headers and they don't want to warranty the exhaust - that's no big deal. But if they're going to give me problems when I take the car in because the air conditioning isn't working or the navigation isn't working - or anything unrelated to the performance modifications - I don't know if "headers" or a "tune" will affect things...

You were going to mod so no real reason to be depressed.
You do make a good point about the non-engine related stuff.
They put that 5,000 mile fine writing in there I guess to specifically get out of stuff like extending the warranty. They pay their lawyers well...

2. Carchex won't warranty anything at all if there's any single non-standard Mercedes modification on the vehicle.
3. Yeah, I need to find out more about that. I'm really curious. Do you know more about it?
When all is said and done, I suppose - unless I'm really unlucky - I should be alright. I mean - the warranty was costing $3000 for 7 years/75,000 miles (usually $3500)... Maybe I won't go too far over that for issues over the next few years anyway...

Moving this to the E-Class section.

Just an FYI I did end up getting what appears to be an excellent aftermarket warranty from a big name company through my contact at the local Mercedes dealership...
