Finally!!

Postby slparry » Fri Feb 09, 2018 8:29 pm

Finally BMW Insured Warranty has changed the stupid wording that said carburettors were covered but not throttle bodies :D

From the latest PDF of the warranty handbook

"Fuel system
Failure of the following parts: injection
control unit, fuel injectors, fuel level
transmitter, fuel pressure regulator,
fuel pump, fuel pump relay, solenoids,
idle control valve, throttle position
potentiometer and throttle body."

and finally switchgear has been added too!


I've uploaded the PDF to my site so it's here for anyone who needs to download it :D

I put my 30k-miles ST's details in for a laugh - surprisingly, they'd take it on, with Euro breakdown, for £39 a month, albeit with a £1k claim limit. I was almost tempted, especially as I've got a trip through France to Spain coming up, but suspect my home servicing over the years would render my bike invalid for cover - not something I'd want to test at the roadside in the middle of rural France! :shock:

I tried with my 11yr old R12S and it would be £395 a year, which meant that the blown gear box seal (which cost 600) at Flash last year would have been covered plus I wouldn't have had to pay extra for the RAC cover.

I spoke to the warranty folk earlier. Unless you've got invoices from a VAT-registered business, for both the parts used and labour for fitting, they won't offer cover.

So is vat registration a credit of competence?

I think not. I also think that excuse/contract term does not stand up to legislation regarding consumer rights and sale of goods act. I may be wrong but if so that seems unreasonable.

Consider an incompetent repair/service carried out by a vat registered business.. That is acceptable from an insurers point of view?

I believe that it is Chris, As I understand it, as long as your servicing is performed by a dealer who is VAT registered, and they use genuine parts and follow the manufacturer's service protocol, then under the "block exemption ruling" then you are still under warranty. This is designed to break the monopoly of dealers who may charge exorbitant fees for basic service procedures. I think that this is a good thing, and also a bad thing, but overall I guess it means a better deal for us punters :dontknow:

I "may" be wrong Steve, but I think that applies to new bike warranty, the extended warranty is an insured product and I seem to recall it falls under different rules

You're right Steve, that's how the guy on the phone explained it to me - because its actually 'insurance', they can set the eligibility factors as they see fit.

It's a while since we went through this with the Buell mob. Apparently, under EU Law, repairs have to carried out by someone 'competant' (however that's defined) but doesn't preclude home repair as long as OEM parts are used. However the snag is, this legislation is (was) aimed at cars etc and motorcycles were not included according to the MoFuCo. As I said previously, I don't know if Euro Law has changed in recent years.

I believe this to be relevant to the manufacturer's warranty that comes with a new vehicle. The BMW Insured Warranty is something different though.
