What should I expect at signing?

Hey guys. I have an order placed for an e92 M3 and I was just wondering if you guys can give me any hint at what the stealership is going to try and sell me at signing (i.e warranty, service, ect...)? Did you guys buy any of that extra stuff? How much were you charged and is it worth it do you think?

Note: I am either going to be leasing or doing BMWSelect.

I appreciate the help!

My CA/dealer was very low pressure. Guess they figured since I knew more about the car than they did, the Sept production changes etc that they weren't going to get much past me. No paint sealant/rust protection crap was offered, no dealer added options etc. Pass on all of that. The only thing that was offered in my case was the BMW tire/wheel insurance which I had already decided I was going to get.

If you are leasing, then they won't bother with warranty/service stuff, unless you're signing a 7 year lease! If you are buying, they might try to sell the extended warranty/service plan but I'd pass at this point. You can buy them at any time before the original warranty (4 year/50k mile) expires.

How much did the tire/wheel warranty run you? Does that cover curb rash on the wheel? What does it cover for the tires?

Does not cover normal wear and tear but pays for punctures, damage from pot holes etc., both rims and tires. I paid $1,050 for three years but prices seem to be all over the place w/ someone quote a NY deale selling the three year for $1,500. They offer a five year plan as well. Good question on curb rash! I would assume not but I'll have to read the fine print...

Edit: Given the cost of the ZCP rims and the PS2 tires (almost $400 a pop), it is worth it in my view...
