Can someone explain to me exactly what you get with the BEST warranty for your Spyder that you don't get with the standard warranty? Is it just an extended warranty that gives you a year or more of the standard warranty? I know you get roadside assistance but what makes it so attractive that you would pay $1200 or so? Does it cover the check up where you pay an arm and a leg to adjust the shims, I don't imagine it does?
I can't quite figure out what I would get by reading the blurb on the BRP site. If it actually is worth it I will cough up the extra cash but if it isn't I'd rather pay $1200 or so on accessories. What do you guys and gals think?

i bought it for the unlimited milage warranty for 5 yrs. i think its just $100 deductable. since we have the first models sold, this could save money later on if there are issues that come up. i paid $1100 at my dealer.

FEATURES & BENEFITS
1 1
1. What is B.E.S.T.?
BRP Extended Service Terms ("B.E.S.T.") is an extended service plan designed to create a new income opportunity for BRP and its authorized dealers. B.E.S.T. is a very affordable product, which can either be included in every new sale or sold at retail to existing customers. It offers a valuable additional extended service plan and also has a customer retention focus with its annual maintenance plan, which brings customers back to BRP dealers for services.
2. Features
�� Two plans to choose from:
- B.E.S.T. Plus: extended service coverage + 10-hour check (off road vehicles)/600 mile inspection (Spyder roadster) and annual maintenance
- Regular B.E.S.T.: extended service coverage only
�� Covers eligible Ski-Doo® snowmobiles, Sea-Doo® PWCs, Can-AmTM ATVs and roadsters and RotaxTM Powered Sea-Doo Sport Boats.
�� Covers all components unless specifically excluded.
�� Coverage available for a full 3-year extended period beyond the manufacturer's warranty. Customers can purchase in 12, 24, 36 month’s blocks.
�� Unlimited mileage/hours protection.
�� Coverage is fully transferable but non-cancelable, at no charge*.
�� Repairs are subject to a deductible of only $50 for each repair order (except for Emergency Roadside Assistance offered on Spyder roadsters).
�� Ability to purchase extra coverage while B.E.S.T. contract is still active.
�� Higher consumer acceptance for factory backed warranty protection.
�� Fully integrated into BOSSWeb for ease of use.

Can I buy a B.E.S.T. protection plan any time I want?
You can purchase, upgrade from B.E.S.T. to B.E.S.T. Plus, or extend your B.E.S.T. protection at any time if your BRP vehicle is still under the manufacturer’s limited warranty or a current B.E.S.T. contract.
What’s the difference between B.E.S.T. and B.E.S.T. Plus?
While B.E.S.T. offers an extension of BRP’s limited warranty, B.E.S.T. Plus goes that extra mile with a 10-hour check (off-road vehicles) or 600 mile inspection (Can-Am™ roadsters) and annual maintenance for the entire B.E.S.T. protection period.
Can I replace my current Ski-Doo “B.E.S.T. Engine Only” coverage with full B.E.S.T. protection?
Absolutely! You can upgrade to B.E.S.T. or B.E.S.T. Plus at any time. Talk to your BRP dealer.
Will my B.E.S.T. coverage be cut off after a certain number of miles or hours of use?
No. B.E.S.T. has no mileage or usage restrictions. Ride as far as you want, as long as you want!
Why is the B.E.S.T. protection plan the right choice for my BRP vehicle?

So BEST is simply an extended standard warranty. BEST Plus throws in a 600 mile maintenance and an annual maintenace and Roadside Assistance.
I live 300 miles from the closest dealer so the 600 mile check means nothing to me.
So for $799 what plan did you get?

I stopped by my dealership yesterday to discuss the B.E.S.T. Plus plan. I have the basic B.E.S.T. and would like to add the Plus prior to my first service. He said that the Plus is a waste of money because he showed me the fine print on the contract and it only says that it covers the INSPECTION ONLY and does not cover the labor or the materials for the actual oil changes or other items that need to be replaced or repaired!

So, is he wrong and how can I prove to him otherwise? He showed me the "fine print" and it clearly states, "INSPECTION ONLY". Basically those items in the owners manual that have an "I" next to them is what he claims is covered.

He made a phone call to BRP and they told him that what is covered under the Plus plan is up to the individual dealership!!!! What kind of B*** S**t is this?
