I also believe Ryan Amico (forum member) can hook up better deals on these extended warranties.
Obviously you are looking at a solid CPO car and if you like it go for it.
A guy told me he purchased the EVP 7yr/70k Platinum Plus warranty from BMW. MSRP cost is $5870. Personally, I wouldn't pay almost $6k for an extra 3 years of warranty. I'll take my chances.
