Extended Warranty Question

I bought a 2008 335i with about 12k in Nov '09, and with only 30k on my car, it's now getting really close to the end of my factory 4yr/50k service warranty. I got a call from the BMW dealership offering me another 5 years or 75k for $4k. Did anyone out there face this situation, and if so, what other options are there for extending the warranty? I don't mind paying the $4k if that's the best option out there, but I don't think it covers regular service. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

That's pretty high -- I just got a quote for 7 yr / 100K miles Gold for $3,290 or Platinum $3,700.

Just to make sure you're clear, they are only offering you an additional 1 year and 25K miles for $4K not a total of 9 years/75K miles. That's a lot of money for only 1 additional year. Better to just keep the money.

I purchased for less than that, 7/100 gold. Seems like everything else, dealers charge whatever they want. 2 wanted list price and wouldn't budge. I've seen unscrupulous dealers mark up over list on the web, and then offer a $250 coupon, what a joke.
