Question Which aftermarket companies to use for warranty? (Buying used M5)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
If I go the M5 (2006-07 likely) it will, most likely, not be from a BMW dealer. I don't want to own that car without a warranty. So I will have to buy one aftermarket.

What should I expect to spend?
What companies have proven to be reputable?
What companies have proven to be worthless?

Im currently looking into this as well, as my factory warranty runs out in two months. I have heard that one thing to look out for is some companies will make you pay for the repairs, and then reimburse you, and some will pay for the repairs up front.

I've heard good things about the Ford Extended Service Plan, but I have no personal experience with it.

B/c for what they cost, I can be in a Z06 & I'd rather have that. So it comes down to M5 if I find the right color, options & mileage or Corvette if I find that first.

Yes, but these are the 2 cars I am after right now. C6 or M5. Whichever I find first. I like a wide variety of cars & change vehicles often. Works for me.
