thorough check up before warranty expires?

Hello all,

Forgive me this newbie if my questions have been repeated because there are total of 13 pages for warranty questions and I can't read all of them. I also only have basic common mechanic and limited BMW knowledge.

I have 2007 (February) 335i coupe, ~45,000 miles, bought used at 2008 with ~8,000 miles, came with extended warranty and purchased the extended maintenance which will expired by the end of January 2013.

2 questions, does anyone (or does it make sense) to take our cars to a third party auto shop for thorough diagnosis for unknown problems, for example like leaky gasket, things that will break soon but not quite yet, then request BMW to repair those problems with this diagnostic record (if there are problems)?

2nd question, does BMW or third party offer any extended warranty after the extended warranty and the quote?

thanks,
Joe

Hmm. Good question but I dont think the dealer will repair it unless its broken.? I've just had mine serviced at 99,xxx miles right before the maintenance expired and they just repaired and replaced what the Key told them to do. I've specifically asked them to check the tranny fluid but they are not gonna change it unless it's malfunctioning.

A lot of people will go in a complain about everything that could possibly be slightly off right before the warranty goes out.
