335I Battery light on and Power Steering fails! Extend Warranty

I was drivin my 2007 335i coupe today and the battery lights came on; steering wheel got immensly heavier almost like i lost my power steering. ive read this can be caused by a worn alternator belt and was wondering if anyone else encountered this problem.

The car has 79KM on it and BMW calgary quote me
A $200 Deductible plan;

1 extra year or a total of 100000kms = $2277 + GST
2 extra years or a total of 120000kms = $2781 + GST
3 extra years or a total of 140000kms = $4062 + GST
3 extra years or a total of 160000kms = $4708 + GST

4 Years / 120,000 Kilometres 6/9/2015 120,000 Kilometres $ 3,540 $ 3,313

I was wondering anyone got AMA warranty? Which one better?

See my latest post. They took your extended warranty money when the problem is related to a design issue. There may be a recal on this problem.
I curently have same problem and got dealer to admit to the design issue they are replacing 2700 in parts and still want me to pay 1000 in labor. I dont think so.
