the aftermarket warranty is really just a probability exercise. if you are going to spend $2100+ in repairs over the life of the warranty, then it's worth it. as a single data point, i have a 11 year old 330ci (also my first car after school, woo!) that i've probably put $5000-7000 in out-of-warranty repairs, maintenance, and wear-and-tear replacements into
That's the thing.. I just don't know how long I'm going to keep the car. Seeing as I won't be driving it much anyway (adding around 5K miles a year). But at the same time, it could easily pay for itself over one repair.
I think I'm going to get one, just for the peace of mind.
