That is not correct, why do you say that?

It's still showing that on the online builder - I need to confirm that it's present for my order from a couple weeks ago. But I haven't seen anywhere that it has been removed.

My friend just took delivery.
Her CA told her so and she paid $1200 for 4 year service.

LOL They suckered her into buying a maintenance package. Likely said she would need brakes and wipers so she should buy Ultimate Care+.

Odd - do you think they convinced her to upgrade to the care "plus"?

Without a doubt and not odd at all. Just about finance manager will try to do that on every sale.

None in my opinion. Some folks think there is value in the tire/wheel package if you are in the habit of banging your wheels and blowing tires.

if you want care packages, get them post sale at negotiated-down prices.

I almost purchased the tire and wheel. But when I confirmed they "repaired" the wheel, I decided against it.

If you buy tires from Tire Rack they include a tire warranty and it is fantastic. I destroyed 2 tires (don't ask) and I had 2 new free tires on the way to my house before the flatbed arrived.

If the vehicle is your daily driver then I would consider the Ultimate Care+ to cover the brakes, but it can be purchased up to the expiration (3 years) of the Maintenance Warranty. So I'm not buying it for the X6 until I need brakes b/c who knows what could happen between then and now. I didn't purchase for the M2C b/c I knew I would never wear them w/in the 3 years.
