~48k miles, out of warranty within the week

I've owned it since this summer. Love the car, but have had to take care of several things since I got her. Thankfully I caught some major ones while under warranty!

AC Evaporator (just caught this, they will replace at my next visit)
iDrive controller came loose (same as above)
Rear sunshade motor replaced
Trim on door pulls and around iDrive controller replaced
Rattle in dash resolved

I went ahead and picked up EasyCare TotalCare (3 yrs, 85k miles, $500 deduct) for ~$2600 for some peace of mind and a hedge against any huge bill in the next few years.

These two repairs they're doing soon really opened my eyes some on the costs that come with this car. They have to remove the entire dash to get at the evaporator (would have been $2700) and have to replace the entire iDrive piece just because the epoxy broke (would have been $900).

Gotta pay to play, I guess!
What's easy care? Who through and how much?
