I should mention, though, that my rear differential started leaking just a week after my warranty expired in my E46. That repair alone justified the extended warranty cost! And of course, with the 335i as you say, repair cost is potentially very high.
Thanks. Nice seeing a former e46 owner here. I know that car like the back of my hand. Hopefully I will know the e90 the same way, just not too soon.

Extended warranty is definitely a hit or miss. Since I DIY, I like to gamble on that. To fix that differential leak would have cost about $15 (cost of the gasket) if you DIY, Dealer $350, INDY $150, and warranty "free".
