All new BMWs come with a manufacturer's warranty. As of 2010, the original factory warranty on BMW was for 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever is reached first. If you plan on keeping your vehicle for longer than either of those periods; you might want to purchase an extended warranty. Most dealerships offer their own extended warranty, and there are many companies with the sole purpose of providing extended vehicle coverage. BMW Corporate offers a sponsored extended warranty called the original owner protection plan, and it adds an extra 2 years and 50,000 miles of coverage. This plan can be purchased by original owners through a BMW dealership.

Step 1

Gather all the supporting evidence you may need. If you sold your vehicle, you will need a copy of your bill of sale. If your car was written off in a car accident; you will need proof from your insurance company.

Step 2

To cancel a dealership-issued warranty, deal with the dealership's finance manager. To cancel the original owner protection plan deal directly with BMW North America, call the necessary provider and get details regarding exactly how to cancel the plan; as each warranty plan has different terms and conditions.

For the original owner protection policy, BMW North America requires a reason for cancellation and a written letter detailing the cancellation or transfer. Prepare a signed letter, attach a copy of your proof, and mail directly to BMW North America.
