Extended Warranty Advice

Guys I'm picking up a 2008 M3 for the first time! The car is in great conditions but has 57K miles...I got a good deal at a BMW Dealer

The dealr ask me to consider an extended warranty for almost 4K more. Worth it

I'm going to do the maintenance my self (Oil/Brakes/Filters

Should I take it or not??

Thanks for the help!

Ask them about the CNA extended warranty. More bang for your buck IMO as it can extend the warranty alot longer than another measly 2 years. But they both have their pros and cons (dealer vs CNA)

I usually say no but since the car has 57k i say buy it....

its not the maintenance is the problem... you got the car at high miles and we dont know what the previous owner did to the car...

i could have sold you my car for 42k stock at 50k miles... in brand new conditions hope you got it cheaper than that....
