Exclamation Best Extended Warranty? HELP!!

So I'm looking to purchase a 2006 330xi with 47k miles and it's a dealer but not BMW. I was looking at top rated companies but I see HORROR stories and scares me crapless! Do any of you have extended warranties through otter companies? Satisfied? Which ones are bad? Which are good?

PLEASE help me make a good choice!. So far I'm leaning toasted AA or Hecx? Something like that lol. Any input will be greatly appreciated!

No NOT ever trust an otter company! They'll charge you a lot more clams then they should, and then just eat hem all!

But it Seems EVERYONE has horror stories! But then again rather chance them fixing it than not being covered at all...

The best way to get your claims paid is through BMW's own extended warranty. I have heard good things about extended warranties offered by AAA though.

Costco offers an extended warranty as well. I had one on the 328 I just traded in... time to call about getting one on my 335 today.

I have a extended warranty from endurance warranties... but I have yet to make a claim so no feedback as far as service... but I do know it cost just under 3k for a 4yr/101k mile warranty.
